A very nice gold overlay Waterman 52 with a rare floral accommodation clip. The gold has no brassing and is in excellent condition. The number 2 waterman nib is also quite good. When flexed it provides a juicy line that never railroads. It is also super responsive, capable of showing pressure application and can make your flexed script look extra sharp. However by no means is this nib a wet noodle, it is responsive and easy to flex but not to an extreme degree or with a brush like feel. It can go about 1.8 but more easily 1.3-1.6mm. 

There was oxidation along the cap and the bottom of the pen but I applied Syd Saperstein's Pen Potion Number 9 Black Hard Rubber on these parts. It reblackens the hard rubber and increases the longevity of the parts by protecting against uv rays and as an extra barrier against the elements. This solution is used by many restorers as a reliable way to bring back the blackness to hard rubber and increase longevity. However I understand that some would like everything to remain the same as it was but, these pens are nearly a century if not a century old and sooner or later they will all break, best to increase that time as much as we can.

Looking for 200  SOLD
