Type  Safety pen

Product Name  44 (marked on the end of the barrel). This is one of the Continental Overlay pens, which have basic hard rubber safety pens which were enhanced in Europe (usually France or Italy) with metal overlays.

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman - 1920s, U.S.A (marked on the red woodgrain end piece).  The overlay is French judging from the imprint "Argent 1er Titre" and the hallmark looks French.  

Length   5-3/16"

Filling System  Safety filler (thoroughly restored and tested, with new seals)

Color  Smooth red woodgrain hard rubber with an overlay of sterling silver in a basketweave design.  The pen is personalized, "C.M." on the barrel.  

Nib  Waterman Ideal New York flexible nib in fine. Full flex, but not a wet noodle.  Good tipping material evident from both the top and the bottom.   See the writing sample, below.  

Condition  Excellent + condition for this really beautiful, elegant safety pen.  There are no cracks, dents, dings, or chips.  The cap and barrel have a few very minor scratches.   The section has horizontal capping lines and one deeper scratch in a black area about 1/4" above the start of the silver overlay.  The twisting mechanism that produces the nib is smooth and works well.   The pen is personalized "C.M." on the barrel.  All imprints are readable, though it is hard to completely make out the small hallmarks.

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.
