[SOLD]Waterman 52v Olive Ripple $230
[SOLD]Waterman 52v Olive Ripple
A very rare and highly sought after Waterman Ripple. The ripples that are not the usual red/black have become increasingly hard to find. This one has no physical damage to the pen except to flea bites on the section. The gold trim on the cap band has a little bit of wear. Imprints are deep on the left side, but slightly faded on the right. Threads are crisp, and the cap screws on/off smooth and snug. Clip has excellent tension. The pen is all original with matching brown feed, and original 14k gold Waterman's Ideal nib. The nib writes from a Fine to BBB+. Beautiful full flex nib that is a joy to write with. The pen's finish has light, but even oxidation over the years. The capped portion show minimal color difference and is hard to notice unless looking for it. Just a hint brighter than the rest of the pen. Highly valuable collector's piece with a superb writing nib. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 11cm capped, 15cm posted, and 10.5cm unposted.
