Model identification guide: Speedline Fillers

n 1937 Parker decided to change the style of the Vacumatics. Following the recipe of the Duofolds, Parker started to produce a more streamlined version of the Vacumatic. The Twist fill was replaced with a new style plunger, only practical difference was that it didn't lock down. It was still made out of aluminium. The blind cap was lengthened to fit the new plunger and the new filling system was named the "Speedline" fill by Parker. The story was that the new filler could be operated with one hand, and therefore was quicker. Another truth was that the Twist filler was prone to breakage and was difficult, thus expensive to repair.
