[SOLD]Waterman 55 Red Ripple $165

[SOLD]Waterman 55 Red Ripple

This huge Waterman's Ripple is quite rare to come by. Unfortunately this pen is not in the best shape. There are some wear to the lever and barrel imprint is non-existent. 2 small chips on cap lip which seems to be stable and protected by gold filled band. The lever also doesn't fully seat in the lever box. Now onto the good. The model "55" imprint is very deep and crisp. Details on clip is very good, and the details on lever is good although has some wear. Threads are superb. The pen is all original with the huge #5 nib! The nib is a Full Flex that writes from an XF-BB. Writes smooth with a little shading behavior. Although this pen is not in the best condition it is fully functional and a 55 is very rare even in black. The Ripple version is more rare and the color on this pen is very good. New sac, and ready for a new home. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm dotted HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 14cm capped, 17.9cm posted, and 13.8cm unposted.

Asking price is $165 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates.
