> Maxima Vacumatic in Black
A very nice condition Maxima Vacumatic fountain pen in black that has an aluminium speedline pump; there is a little plating wear on the edges of the band and on the high points of the clip but there is very little on the tassie ring. There are no cracks, splits, or engraved names and the tassies on the cap and the blind cap are both 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 fine grade 14ct gold two-colour, and I would think, original to the pen; it writes nicely. The imprint is very readable. Please be aware that the blind cap may be from another pen as its forward end is slightly smaller than the lower end of the barrel.
