> Standard-size Vacumatic in Silver Pearl
A very nice condition Standard-size Vacumatic fountain pen in silver pearl that has an aluminium speedline pump; there is little or no plating wear on the bands or the tassie ring but a little on the clip. There are no cracks, splits, or engraved names and the tassies on the cap and the blind cap are silver pearl; there are one or two small marks consistent with use. The pen has been stripped, cleaned, had a new diaphragm fitted, reassembled, adjusted, and write tested. The nib is a fine grade single-colour 14ct gold, and I would think, original to the pen; it writes nicely. The nib was originally two-colour but the silvery part has worn off. The imprint is hardly readable.
