Nib  Waterman Ideal New York 4. It has excellent flex. Though not a wet noodle, we consider it full flex. Lots of tipping material. It goes from fine to double broad with just a little pressure. See writing sample below. 

Condition   Excellent condition. There's a crack in the underlying hard rubber that you can see if you look inside the cap, it is short and extends into the corner of one of the open filigree areas. Some dents on the top of the cap (see photo). Otherwise, no cracks, chips, large dents, or personalization. The hard rubber is smooth and a nice deep black, no fading. The sterling overlay is gorgeous, no scratches. The clip is well-secured and in excellent condition.

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.
