OMG! Behold the great grail pen of Parker fanatics....the Parker Vacumatic Maxima WITH a FLEXI nib! This vintage pen is amazing enough with minimal wear and a very clear, though a little ambered, barrel. Its aluminum speedline filler is in good working order. No cracks or brassing. The "name plate" in the jeweler's cap band has a little wonkiness in its plating, but there are no engravings. Yet, we know it's the pen's two-tone 14k gold nib that likely got your attention. You will write a wonderful extra-fine to 1mm line with its great flexibility. Not a wet noodle but definitely flexi, which is so rare in a Parker pen of this era. Some of the plating is coming off the nib. Click the headline for a close-up. 13.5cm capped.
