Here is a 1932 Vacuum Filler Junior (the mid size model) in opaque Black (solid black – not laminated). Parker was issued a design patent for the laminated plastic (which at first Dupont doubted they could manufacture). Introduced as the “Golden Arrow” in mid-1932, the name was changed to “Vacuum Filler” in November that same year, and again changed in mid-1933 to “Vacumatic.” Parker attributes the Vacumatic as saving the company during the lean Depression years. Two-toned “Arrow” nib with the correct “USA Parker” imprint (medium). A few minor surface scratches here and there, otherwise near mint.
