This one snuck a little under the radar at $700ish, but I don't see the usual suspects bidding.

Link.

Do all of that design have the "Golden Arrow" imprint?  I couldn't make any thing out in the picture.  I feel like there was another auction for a similar design recently that also ended at several hundred dollars.

Nope, "Vacuum fillers" look the same.

A rare and significant vac. We had hefty discussion over at the facebook group.  Pen apparently has later nib and is missing cap-bands, though cap otherwise intact.   An entire stubby cap could be taken from a Vacuum Filler, or cap-bands from donor standard Vacumatic cap could be swaged in place. One of the FB Group members won it (not me. I'd missed it).

Here is Golden Arrow set from my own collection to illustrate

Didn't see the Golden Arrow imprint on the eBay pictures but the nib is wrong for a Golden Arrow.  Finding one Golden Arrow nib is hard enough...

The imprint wasn't visible.   According to the question and answer at the bottom of the page it had the Golden Arrow imprint.
