Type  Safety pen in excellent working condition

Product Name  0742 1/2 V, marked on the end of the barrel. The numbers do not completely match this pen. 0 = gold filled overlay, 7 = solid gold barrel band, 4 = safety filling system, 2 = nib size, 1/2 = slender, V = short. The 42 1/2 V apply, but the 0 and 7 do not. (The piston end piece might have come from a different pen.)

Length  3-9/16" capped, 4-3/4" posted. This is an extremely small pen, so please don't purchase it without giving considerdation to the size.

Filling System  Safety filler (we replaced the seals and thoroughly tested the pen, and we will guarantee it to be free from leaks for a year from the date of purchase.)

Color  Black hard rubber with a sterling silver filligree. The filigree has a leaf motif.

Nib  FLEXIBLE MEDIUM Waterman's Ideal New York #2 gold nib is very smooth. It has lots of tipping material and writes with good line variation. There is a slight gap at the tipping part of the tines that allows for wet writing. See our writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent + condition. The hard rubber is black and the imprints are clear. There are small dings and marks on the sterling overlay, but it's hard to see them amid the engraved strokes. The cap has a few small scrapes and deeper dings. No cracks in the hard rubber or filigree. The pen has been personalized, "Harriet Sleeper." Or possibly "Fleeper"! The nib extends and retracts as it should.

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.
