Type  Safety pen in excellent working condition

Product Name  So called "Baby" version. 12 1/2 V.S., marked on the end of the barrel. 1 = safety filling system, 2 = nib size, 1/2 = slender, V = short.  There was a smaller safety pen made by Waterman, but this is the more common one usually referred to as the "Baby."

Length  3-1/2" capped, 4" posted. This is an extremely small pen, so please don't purchase it without giving consideration 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 chased hard rubber.  The color has some fading to a dark brown (especially on the cap).  The 12-1/2 V.S. mark at the end of the barrel is in red.  

Nib  FLEXIBLE FINE Waterman's #2 Ideal gold nib is very smooth. It has lots of tipping material and writes with excellent line variation, almost full flex. See the writing sample below. Note the narrow lines. 

Condition  Excellent condition for this miniature pen.  The chasing looks good throughout.  The barrel looks great.  The cap has some small bite marks at the very top.  Both the cap and barrel have some fading (especially the cap) to a dark brown.  This is especially visible in the light.  The nib feed has some green tinge along the edges.  No cracks, chips, dings, or dents.  The imprints are crystal clear and the safety knob turns well.

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.
