[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v BCHR Ringtop $125

[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v Black Chased Hard Rubber Ringtop

This little ringtop has very good details. The chasing and imprints are superb! The coloring has even oxidation, so it's not black, but a very dark uniform brown. The cap is complete, and screws on smoothly with nice deep threading. No cracks anywhere on the pen, but a few light scratches near the butt end. There are some tarnished spots on the lever box and the cap ring. The lever box seems to have a very tiny kink in it. Probably due to someone bending it from a solidified sac. It is not cracked, so it functions flawlessly, but had to mention that. The lever itself has good details on the ideal globe, and is nice and shiny. The original 14k Waterman's Ideal nib is very nice, and capable of huge line variation. Writes from a F/M-BB+ showing Superflex qualities. Pics don't do the pen justice, because I don't have enough lighting for dark pens. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 11cm capped, 14cm posted, and 10.3cm unposted.

Asking price is $125 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates.
