The Azure Blue model of the Parker Vacumatic was released in November 1940 and made through 1941 as a late addition to the second generation of the vacumatic. Made for a short time has made it more collectable today. This pen is the large Maxima model with the gold filled blue diamond clip, wide Maxima cap band and matching azure cap and barrel jewels. The date code is rather feint but just legible as a “1” for 1941.
The pen It is 13.3cm closed and 15.3cm with the cap posted, slightly shorter than the other Maxima models.
The two-colour nib is a fine point, a firm smooth writer.
