Here is a Canadian WWII era Major. excellent cond., the pen was quite dirty & cleaned up to reveal a very nice pen. Nib signed: 14K PARKER VACUMATIC REG. T.M. MADE IN CANADA 4 It's a medium soft flex nib, a lot of line variation, check out the ink dip test in the photos. The body stamp is crisp as well: MADE IN CANADA PARKER VACUMATIC REG. T.M. PAT. No. 318982 .3. [2 Qtr. 1943]

This pen is completely restored, cleaned & repaired. Someone in the past tried to muscle the section off and they left dents. (hate to see damage made by ignorance) Once restoring these Vacs, I have gone to not sealing the section with the traditional Shellac, bonding the section to the body. Instead I use waterproof silicone grease. This seals and yet lets you remove the section which facilitates keeping the pen clean and pristine. Nice body transparency celluloid has reddish patina, photos indicate condition. The pen has been flushed of old ink, diaphragm replaced. The interior, the nib & section cleaned and the whole pen polished and tested for functionality. This pen comes in armored shipping packet in it's own hand-made box.

Vacumatic Diaphragm filling w/WWII austerity Celluloid plunger. Body hollow makes up ink's reservoir and the pen is filled by repeating the blind capped plunger which flexes the diaphragm & creates the vacuum to fill the body. This pen uses bottled ink.
