[SOLD]Waterman 52 BCHR Custom Stub $105

[SOLD]Waterman 52 Black Chased Hard Rubber w/ Customized Stub

I have a Waterman 52 with excellent chasing and imprints. Cap and barrel very dark. I took the cap from another pen since the original cap to this one had a missing clip and a chipped cap lip, so the cap is not as detailed as the barrel. The imprints are perfect on this one, and the chasing is very detailed on the barrel, but a bit faint on the cap. The nib also had one tine missing its point, so I ground this to a very juicy and smooth stub. It gives awesome line variation with the new grind, plus it Superflexes very nicely producing a very unique writing experience. For those that haven't written with an Italic or Stub nib, you can think of it as a Med/Broad on downstrokes and Fine on horizontal strokes. The nickel trim on the lever/box is very shiny with no wear whatsoever. Ideal globe lever very detailed. The cap has wear on the clip, but retains excellent tension with sturdy rivets making the clip perfectly functional. No chips, bite marks, or major scratches. Pen has been fully restored with a new sac, and operates like it should. Nib is original Waterman's Ideal 14k #2 nib with heart shaped breather hole. Writes a Fine on horizontal strokes, and a Medium/Broad on a downstroke which flexes very nicely to BBB. Beautiful shading smooth writer. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are:  13.7cm capped, 17cm posted, and 13cm unposted.

Asking price is $105 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates.
