Type  Fountain Pen

Product Name  Model 452 1/2 V (4 means full sterling overlay, 5 means lever filler, 2 represents the nib size, 1/2 means that it's thin, and V means short)

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, USA  -- 1930s.

Length  3-9/16" closed (excluding ringtop hardware), 4-7/8" when posted

Filling System  Lever filler, restored here at PSP with a new sac.

Color  Sterling silver filigree over black hard rubber. The sterling is a basketweave pattern that looks almost floral. The section is black without an overlay.

Nib  FULLY FLEXIBLE FINE Waterman's New York nib. It gets good line variation from fine to double broad and the tines spread easily. Please see the writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent condition. The sterling is nice and shiny but the exposed hard rubber is very slightly discolored and faded. There are small scratches throughout the silver overlay, though in hand the pen looks quite nice. There is a shallow dent on the un-personalization cartouche area, and some smaller dents near the end of the barrel. The imprints are good. The pen is ready to write.

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.
