Parker Vac Junior? What is this? I’ve been told it’s a Parker Vacumatic Junior but I can’t find one that looks like this. Is the clip original or a replacement? Your advice would be much appreciated. Share this:EmailPrintFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related

It looks like a striped duofold junior also called a duovac, see http://parkerpens.net/duovac.html. Usually, there is an imprint saying ‘Parker duofold’, but I cannot see an imprint on the photo’s.
Thank you, Jan. I shall look into that. Unfortunately there is no imprint – probably worn away.
All looks correct
Thank you, Peter.
I didn’t intend to comment – suspect both respondents know 100% than me about these Parkers, but ……………….
just to say that I did look in both the Vac. and Duofold books and replies do appear accurate.
I could be wrong, but it appears that Vac. Juniors were made in black and crystal/black only, rather than colours.
Shepherd & Zazove say they were made in four colours and back it up with a period pamphlet, where it is called a Sackless Duofold (page 103).
hello Peter – I should have written a little more to avoid what is obviously now crossed wires.
My comments referred to the original suggestion where Deb. had been informed that this pen was a Parker Vac. Junior. It was to that model (the Junior) – in the Vac. book – pages 69 – 72 – that I was drawing attention, to add weight to the now obvious fact that Deb’s pen is definitely not a Vac. Junior (which I named in my post as black and crystal).
Apologies for confusion and hope now is all crystal clear.
I blame Parker’s for producing a Duofold with a vacumatic filling system. They should have called it a ‘Duovac’!
For clarity: Parker Duofold Vacumatic Junior or Striped Duofold or Sackless Duofold. Collectors call it a Duovac. Take yer pick.
