Vintage Waterman #52 Fountain Pen, Black Chased Hard Rubber, Could Be 1909-12:
Here is an early Waterman #52 Fountain Pen. It could date to 1909-12. It is black chased hard rubber and has a wide gold band with a flower design. The number 52 is printed in red on the bottom of the barrel, very readable (my picture is just a little out of focus). It has a lever filler, a new sac, and is in working condition. The gold nib has a fine writing point. The pen is 5.38 inches long when capped. This is a very pretty pen.

I have received information from a much more knowledgeable pen person than me, who says the 5x series dated from 1917-1927 so that would be a more accurate dating of this pen. Because of offers that are already on the item, I cannot change the information in the title or description areas but hope this clarifies the issue.
