Type  Vintage lever filling fountain pen.

Product Name  Commando (it's marked on the barrel). This model was one step down in size from the standard Hundred Year Pen, and otherwise quite similar to the later Hundred Year Pens.

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, made in USA -- early 1940's.

Length  5".

Filling System  Lever filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working very well.

Color  Black with gold plated trim and two thin cap bands. 

Nib  FLEXIBLE FINE Waterman's Ideal 14k gold nib is quite large. It's smooth with nice tipping material. It's flexible, with line variation from fine to a nice larger broad with a little pressure. Not full flex, but close and great for every day writing. See our writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent condition for this very shiny, nice-sized pen.  The barrel has marks caused by capping lines and some handwear; otherwise, scratching on the barrel is light.  The cap has light wear only.  The section has one short scratch in the center but it otherwise perfect.  The cap trim rings look good and the clip is excellent, with no brassing.  There are no cracks, dents, dings, or chips.  The imprint is crystal clear.

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.
