Type  Fountain pen and ballpoint set for medical professional

Product Name Waterman CF Pen Set

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, made in USA -- 1950s.

Length  Fountain Pen:   5-5/16"; Mechanical Pencil:  5-3/16"

Filling System  Cartridge/converter. Here's the challenge with Waterman CFs: the cartridges and converters are no longer made and are close to impossible to find. To use these pens, most modern day owners resort to refilling the cartridges with a syringe. The owner of this set is lucky though. The pen includes a Waterman's converter and the box still has a dummy cartridge. The ballpoint is unusual in that at first we thought it was a pencil because there's an eraser visible when you pull off the cap, however it writes like a ballpoint. We're not sure what type of ballpoint refill is required ... the current black refill works.

Color Black, probably lacquer bodies with chrome caps.  The clips include a gold plated caduceus on a black lacquer circle.  

Nib  FINE steel nib is smooth and slightly springy.

Condition  Excellent + condition in original box with one empty cartridge included.  The set is very attractive and shiny.   The fountain pen has light scratching on the barrel with one arched scratch toward the  middle of the barrel  The cap is nice and shiny.  The caduceus looks great but the black lacquer circle it rests on has a few small chips in the paint.  The ballpoint has some microscratching on the barrel.  The cap looks great and the caduceus is in excellent condition.   The box top corners are ripped and someone has appliced scotch tape to them.   No cracks, chips, dings, or dents.  The imprints are clear.

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 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.
