Behold the mighty Parker Vacumatic Maxima! A grail pen for many, this large version of the Vacumatic is a rare double-jewel treat. If perfection is an A+, this pen is an A-. Cosmetically, the pen is crack and scratch free. It has a crisp clean imprint. No brassing mars the gold-plated trim. It has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. Under the tail's blind cap is an aluminum speedline filler. The only problems aren't really problems just slight deviations from perfection. Its celluloid barrel is still very transparent, but it has ambered just ever so slightly. Its large 14k gold nib writes a beautiful, smooth fine line, but some of the rhodium plating has worn off to lose its two-tone original look. It will be difficult to find a nicer vintage pen. 13.5cm capped.
