Type  Vintage pen which works beautifully and has a flexible nib.

Product Name Model 52 1/2 V (marked on the end of the pen barrel)

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, USA -- 1920s

Length  4-5/16" without the ring top mechanism. This is a short and slim pen.

Filling System  It is a lever filler. A new sac has been installed. It's fully restored and working well.

Color Black chased hard rubber (BCHR) with silver colored lever. We're guessing it's nickel but it's in really good condition for nickel. The ring top mechanism looks like it had a gold wash on it.

Nib  The nib reads "Waterman Ideal New York" and has almost full flex. Line variation from fine to double broad. See the writing sample below.

Condition  Superior condition. The chasing is very even and intact. The barrel imprint is very clear and there is not too much plating wear on the lever and lever box. The ring in the ring top moves easily and looks good. No cracks or chips.

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.
