If you happen to be one of my penpals you have probably received one or two letters written with this pen, a Parker Vacumatic 1946. It once belonged to a ”MARVIN YATES” of whom I know nothing. I bought the pen from a friend on www.fountainpennetwork.com . I sent it to Mr Björn Arebom in Malmö in Southern Sweden. He installed a new nib, a breather tube and a new diaphragm and voilá, an absolutely gorgeous pen that I use for those special letters. It’s filled with J.Herbin ”Lie de Thé”.
Sailors and Parker 51s are my user pens, but when it comes to beauty, these pens wins. The Emerald Pearl is a 3rd Generation from 1946 and the Golden Pearl is a 2nd Generation from 1939.
