THE VACUUM FILLER " RIPLEY PEN "
At the last Columbus Pen Show I had the oportunity to buy this interesting pen from my friend David Nishimura from Rhode Island ( www.vintagepens.com) . The pics are not mine but from him and the information it is on the Vacumatic book by Dan Zazove, David Shepherd and Geoffrey Parker ( not sure of the order of the names in the book ).
According to Tony Fishier in his www.parkercollecor.com wonderful site the "Ripley" with the Vacumatic barrel imprint it's more rare than the Vacuum filler one:
(9) "Ripley's". Laminated Burgundy Pearl. This was a very short production pen and the first transparent laminated Vacumatic filler. Items with the imprint "Vacumatic" are more uncommon. Note the black blind cap.
