Wasp Vacuum-Fil. Made by The Sheaffer’s Pen Co. (W.A.S.P.). Circa 1930s. U.S.A.
Burgundy Rose Marbled, with gold plated trim. All in Excellent Condition.
This pen is a “Twist Action” filler. As you can see in photos: both barrel end and blind cap have arrows. When the arrows are aligned, the blind cap is threaded in all the way. To activate filler, gently turn blind cap (1) turn counterclockwise, with nib/feed submerged in ink, thread the blind cap back in, lining up the arrows. Not only is this a nice action, the blind cap also fills with ink. * New sac has been installed! No doubt this blind cap was originally clear, now a light amber and completely translucent.
The nib is a 14k Vacuum-Fil #3. A smooth writing, Extra Fine to Fine point, with FULL FLEX and lots of iridium.
Barrel imprint is deep/crisp, like new.
Pen measures 5 1/16” capped and 5 7/8” posted.
