Parker began applying date codes in 1934. From then until 1938, the codes took the form of a pair of digits; the first indicating which quarter and the second the year. Thus, a pen with a 46 code is from October through December of 1936, and pens made in the third quarter are very obvious about their year.
How do you use Parker Vacumatic?
Submerge the nib completely in the ink bottle. Depress the plunger. You should hear bubbling as air is forced out of the pen. Release the plunger and hold the pen in place while ink flows into the pen.

Is Parker Vector good?
5.0 out of 5 stars Works very well for a cheap fountain pen. The Parker Vector, either the rollerball or fountain pen models, is a cheap way to get a pen that performs as well as those costing much more. The body is mostly plastic and does not weigh much, so this isnt a replacement for a nice hefty high-end pen.
