[SOLD]ALCO/Waterman 1st Gen Skywriter $50

[SOLD]Aiken Lamber Co. & Waterman 1st Gen Skywriter in Blue

I stumbled upon this in a fix it lot. This is the 1st generation Skywriter made in Canada by Alco for Waterman before they were fully bought out by Waterman. Very nice deep blue color to it. Has a very nice water effect when viewed in the light. All parts seem to be original. Some general wear, but in good condition. Clip has lots of spring. Tiny amount of tarnish on the cap band and clip. The lever has good luster. Fitted with new sac, and ready to write. The nib is a semi flex from XF-B. The nib is a 14k Remex nib, which as far as I can tell from a few sources are original to the pen. It is a little stained, but writes smoothly. The imprints are very good. Threads are in excellent condition. Overall length is 12.6cm, posted is 16.5cm, and unposted is 11.7cm. Please check pics as they describe the pen better than my words.Writing sample is done on .5cm dotted HP 24lb laserjet paper.

Asking price is $50 shipped within CONUS via First Class with tracking. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates.
