Type Vintage pen which works beautifully and has a flexible nib.
Product Name Model 55 (this is a good sized pen, verging on the oversized when compared with the standard sized pens of the day)
Manufacturer and Year Waterman - circa 1925
Length 5-1/2"
Filling System Lever filler (We have replaced the bladder and it works very well.)
Color Red ripple hard rubber cap and barrel. The trim is gold plated.
Nib The nib is marked Waterman Reg Pat Off 5. It is nicely flexible (fully flexible but not a wet noodle) with a good ink flow ... and a lot of tipping material. The line varies from fine to double broad.




Excellent condition, really very nice.  No cracks or chips. Some brassing though the gold plated trim is largely nice and shiny.  The imprints are very good.

There are some gouges and toolmarks on the section. 

This pen writes very smoothly with a good amount of flex. The filling system is working well, with a new bladder, and we'll guarantee it for a year.

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.
