> Black Maxima Vacumatic
A nice condition Canadian-made Maxima Vacumatic fountain pen in black that has an aluminium speedline pump; there is little or no plating wear on the band or the clip but there is just a little on the tassie ring. There are no cracks, splits, or engraved names and the tassies on the cap and the blind cap are black; 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 medium oblique grade two-colour 14ct gold, and I would think, original to the pen; it writes nicely. The imprint is crisp; they don't come much better than this one and one can see it has not been used much as the barrel is see-through along most of its length.
