[Cancelled]Waterman 12 POC Ebonite Eyedropper $130

[Cancelled]Waterman 12 POC Ebonite Eyedropper

This is a very old 1900's Waterman 12 Ebonite Eyedropper in all Ebonite/Hard Rubber. The pen has some age related wear like the oxidation of the hard rubber turning it to a greyish brown. The cap is slightly more oxidized than the barrel, but is not as apparent as the pics show compared to viewing it in person. The imprints are not the best on the barrel, while the model imprint of "12 POC" is still deep and legible on the butt end(sorry bad pictures). Clip is fully function with excellent tension, but does show some plating loss. The section has 4 little circular scratches on it. The pen itself however is fully functional, and boy does it write. The Waterman #2 New York Ideal nib is very smooth and has huge line variation writing from a F/M to BB+ quite easily. This pen has huge ink capacity in a handsome all ebonite body/cap with some character from being 100+ years old. These Waterman 12's are quite old and rare. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 13cm capped, 16cm posted, and 12.4cm unposted.

Asking price is $130 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates.
