Details

Type  fountain pen with a flexible nib and a mechanical pencil

Product Name   0552  (marked on the end of the barrel). The number system is as follows: 0 = gold filled, 5 = full overlay, 5 = lever filler, 2 = nib size.

Manufacturer and Year   Waterman, made in USA -- 1920s.

Length  The fountain pen measures 5-3/8". The pencil measures 5-3/16"

Filling System  The fountain pen is a lever filler. We've restored it here at PSP with a new sac. The mechanical pencil uses a twist mechanism. The leads extend well but need to be pushed back in. It takes "thick" or 1.1mm leads.

Color  Sheraton (lined) overlay pattern. Black hard rubber with gold filled overlay. The pencil has a hard rubber cone.

Nib  FLEXIBLE ITALIC BROAD Waterman's Ideal New York #2 gold nib is very smooth. It has a definite cut for line variation in addition to tines that spread a bit. See our writing sample below.

Condition  Superior condition. The exposed black hard rubber parts of the fountain pen have lightened slightly to a dark brown. There are several fine scratches on the cap and barrel. There is a little line of brassing at the top edge of the cap. The very tip of the pencil cone looks brassed. Both pen and pencil have polishing marks and handwear. Their imprints are clear, including the one on the fountain pen near the end of the barrel. The pencil has one dent, but none on the fountain pen. Both are personalized, "RAR" and they ship in their original Waterman's Ideal pen box.

Policies

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
