Type  Vintage pen 

Product Name  Model 94 (it's marked on the end of the barrel and is just barely legible).

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, Made in USA -- 1930s

Length  5"

Filling System  Lever filler. We replaced the bladder and it works very well.

Color  Steel Quartz is a gray marbled celluloid with some red blocks in. It has a patterned cap band measuring over 1/8".

Nib  FIRM FINE gold Waterman's Ideal "Purple" nib. It's in nice condition with good tipping, and feels smooth on paper. It's very firm with absolutely no line variation. The "Purple" nib was labeled originally as a stiff fine nib "designed for pressureless writing; a good accounting nib."

Condition  Excellent + condition. There is some plating wear, but the nickel plating has overall held up well. The pen has handwear and some microscratching. The end of the barrel is slightly scratched and it's nearly impossible to read the number imprint. The Waterman barrel imprint is very clear.

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.)

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.
