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

Product Name Model 52, marked on the end of the pen barrel. 5 means lever filler, 2 represents the nib size.

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, USA -- 1920s

Length  5-3/8" 

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 nickel plated trim consisting of lever box and Clip-cap clip. Discolored to a dark brown in places.

Nib  Medium Italic Semiflexible Waterman's Ideal New York gold nib. The #2 nib writes smoothly with strong line variation when the flex is combined with the italic cut. Please see the writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent condition though there is some discoloration. The chasing is strong on the cap and worn on the barrel. The barrel chasing is still visually present but not texturally. Similarly, the color is closer to the original black on the cap than on the barrel. The discoloration is not consistent. The three barrel imprints are very clear and easily read. The trim has some wear but it looks worse in the photos than in hand. No cracks or chips.

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.
