[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v BCHR Missing Ringtop $105
[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v BCHR Missing Ringtop
Nice glossy black chased hard rubber. A great little pen with a beautiful vintage Waterman flex nib. These 52 1/2v's are very often overlooked by most buyers because of their smaller size, but they post to a usable length for most hands, and they are great deal compared to their full size brother the infamous Waterman 52. This particular pen's hard rubber is in great shape, and is nice and glossy. The hard rubber has slight oxidation so it is not a jet black, but is still very dark. The chrome trim on the lever is in great shape and is nice and shiny. The cap is missing its ringtop, but I think the majority of users don't hang their fountain pens with a chain like they were traditional meant for anyway. Imprints aren't the deepest but they are all there and legible. The nib is the real gem here as it has beautiful flex, and is very smooth while maintain a fine line that swells nicely when wanted. Lays down a XF to BBB. Please excuse the blurry writing sample due to my cheap printer/scanner combo. You can see it shades nicely, and the writing experience is hard to explain in words. No chips, cracks, or bite marks. Just missing its ring on the cap. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 10.7cm capped, 13.8cm posted, and 10cm unposted.
Asking price is $105 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.
