[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v BCHR w/Price Tag $115
[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v BCHR w/Price Tag
This 52 1/2v would be considered near mint if it was for the rubber oxidation. The chasing is probably the most crisp I've seen on these, and the imprints pop. Model imprint still has red paint! I've left the price tag on, and didn't even polish the pen concerned I might damage the price tag. This could be valuable to a collector, but I'm offering it at regular prices since it is not a perfect piece. Extra bonus for some folks I assume. Threads are crisp, and cap screws on smooth and snug. The ringtop is secure, but has some brassing along with the lever. I believe they can be polished to a nice shiny surface, but haven't tried. The pen is all original including the 14k solid gold Waterman's Ideal nib which writes from a Fine to BBB. Very smooth nib that is characteristic of quality Waterman nibs. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 10.7m capped, 13.8cm posted, and 10.1cm unposted.
Asking price is $115 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.
