Description Parker Burgundy Pearl Oversize Vacumatic Pen. Circa 1939. Burgundy Pearl laminated celluloid cap and barrel. Transparent barrel. This is a short oversize model pen. It is correct, as the barrel imprint is well centered, indicating that the barrel has not been shortened. Metal speedline filler, screw cap, black hard rubber section, and comb feed. Yellow gold filled arrow clip, tasse, and three thin cap bands. Laminated blind cap. Striped end jewels. Barrel imprint reads, "GEO. S. PARKER, PARKER VACUMATIC, MADE IN U.S.A." and, "9." Two tone Canadian triple broad Parker arrow nib marked, "14K PARKER VACUMATIC REG. T. M." Although the nib is Canadian, neither the barrel imprint nor the clip carry Canadian marks, therefore the pen is American made. Length is 4 13/16 inches.
