 Old writing instruments are cool; companies were constantly struggling to outdo each other with new filling systems, updated nibs, and new body styles.

This one is a classic, a Parker Vacumatic Major from the fourth quarter of 1943 (thank you Parker date codes!). It came to me with a feed that had been destroyed and missing a breather tube, and I think the nib will need some slight reshaping due to a slight warp in the shank (but the iridium seems fine, thank goodness).
