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

Product Name  Model 7, marked on the end of the pen barrel. This version of the 7 is from the Colorband series, with a "Red" nib.

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, USA - circa 1920s

Length  5-5/8"

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

Color   Red ripple hard rubber with gold plated trim. The red colored insert in the cap may be original, as it's got fine cracks throughout and has darkened to a brownish red. 

Nib  The nib is marked RED Waterman Ideal. The feed is red ripple ebonite, matching the rest of the pen. The RED mark on the nib was Waterman's classification, indicating normal flexibility. The line varies from medium to broad. See writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent + condition. No cracks, chips, or personalization. Some brassing on the cap band, and the ball at the end of the clip has brassing and plating wear. The color is excellent with very little fading and the imprints are crisp and clear. The lever box and lever are in great condition, just a bit of brassing on a couple of the edges. This pen writes very smoothly with a good amount of flex. The filling system is working well,

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.
