A lovely Oversize Parker Vacumatic in transparent burgundy and black pearl horizontal striped laminate with matching cap and barrel jewels, black section, correct for the pens made in Canada. There does not appear to be a date code.
The barrel imprint is crisp: MADE IN CANADA VACUMATIC REG.T.M. OTHER PATENTS PENDING PAT. No. 318982 51
The 51 is in the position that a date code would be on a US-made Vac but is not in the format of the US date codes.
The pen has the aluminum lockdown filler and the nib is a Canadian two-colour fine point, a lovely expressive flexible writer.
Closed the pen is about 13.6cm and with the cap posted 16.7cm. (The Canadian Oversize is slightly more oversize than the US-made pens.)00
CONDITION: excellent, lovely colour, nice transparency, just a minor spot of brassing on the end of the clip arrow and on the barrel jewel band. The nib is in excellent condition with the palladian plating pristine and plentiful tipping. The filler has been serviced and the pen is a lovely writer, very expressive and flattering.
