Type  Vintage fountain pen in working condition, lever filler, hard to find. Matching pencil.

Product Name  Waterman Hundred Year Pen (marked on the nib, and on the cap)

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, USA, circa 1941. This is the second year version with a triple band on the ribbed barrel and a partially ribbed cap. Third year models had one cap band and a ribbed barrel and partially ribbed cap. 

Length  Full size 5-1/16" (there's a fatter oversized model, but this is the standard full size pen)

Filling System  Lever filler. We've replaced the bladder with a new sac in the pen and the filling system works well. The pencil takes 1.1mm leads.

Color  Red transparent smooth barrel and cap, made of Lucite. Gold plated trim.

Nib  Fine flexible nib, please see writing sample. (The pen originally had a rigid nib but we discovered a crack and so we replaced it with the exact same nib with flex.)

Condition  FOUNTAIN PEN: Excellent working condition. Only light scratches on the body and trim, with no brassing . Lucite can be prone to cracking, but luckily it doesn't crumble like the material used in the later Hundred Year pens. No cracks, but we do recommend caution when using the clip as the area where the clip attaches can be prone to cracking. Pen has original sticker: "875 Rigid Fine $8.75" which refers to the original nib, which has been replaced with a flexible nib.

PENCIL: Near perfect with signs of light usage only. It works well. Also has sticker: "P1002 $5.00"

Original Waterman box included.

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.
