[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v Ripple $140
[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v Ripple
Excellent condition 52 1/2v Ripple. Nice glossy finish on the pen with brilliant color and ripple pattern. The cap has a little bit of gunk on it which I've removed more than 90% of, but a tiny bit remains. It is barely noticeable, but can be seen in pic #6. Another issue is that the feed is not an original ripple feed. It is from a black 52 1/2v which functions the same, and has been heat set to the nib, and delivers superb ink flow. The pen has deep imprints which state it is Canadian made with the original 14k gold Ideal nib with Canada marks to match. The nib has superb flexibility that writes from XF to BBB with Full Flex softness. A superb pen that will put out fancy script in capable hands. Gold trim is near perfect with no wear. Threads are crisp, and the cap screws on/off smooth and snug. No cracks, chips, or bite marks. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 11m capped, 14cm posted, and 10.3cm unposted.
Asking price is $140 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking/insurance. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates. I am not responsible for any duty fees incurred since I have no control over customs.
