Type  Vintage mechanical pencil

Product Name  Red Ripple  ... we're not certain which fountain pen went with this pencil, but our best guess is that it is the mate to a ripple 52, 53, or 54  pens which were all more or less the same size.

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, USA, 1920s

Length  5-9/16"

Filling System  Takes thick style (1.1mm) leads. Lead extends in the traditional, twist mechanism, but you may have to push it with your finger to make it retract. We'll include a small pack of leads. When you unscrew the top, you can remove the metal tube that holds the eraser and spare leads.

Color  Mottled red hard rubber in the "Red Ripple" design, with gold plated trim.

Condition  Excellent + condition.  There are no visible flaws on the body of the pencil.  The tip and ball of clip have some plating wear.  The imprints are clear.  There is also a clear personalization, "B.C. Hartman" on the cap. It is not very deep and could probably be removed.  The eraser on the lead holder is like new but it is very hard and won't erase anything.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

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.
