Some more information about this Waterman pen................

What a wonderful Waterman this is. I have 2 things of note to write about this pen that say far more than any other babble I mightscribble further on.1. It has the BEST flex nib I have for sale this week. Period.2. It has hidden beauty than only ever gets better the closer you look. Its usually the reverse.In my eyes this pen is by far the most handsome pen I am selling this week also. Warts and all. Dare I say it, this pen has charm.
Ok that said lets take a look at this beauty. Made in USA in the early 1930s. The body and cap are made of Celluloid. The colours are UNIQUE and simply stunning. The celluloid has a Golden Amber patina. The pen I guess was originally light pearl green. Parts of the cap and tail of the pen still are. Strangely this ALL works to create a beautiful balance of colours quite unlike anything else I have seen. In my opinion this patina adds to its beauty and makes it a one of a kind. This pen is perhaps not for the purist Watermab collector who wants mint everything. This pen is for the connoisseur who cares more for beauty and writing ability coupled with originality than anything so trivial as correct clip or what nib should or should not be on this pen etc..... Ok the clip. The clip isobviouslynot its original. It is a rare made in the U.S.A. Swan Mabie Todd pocket clip. It would have had the 2 rivet early 30's type fixed clip. The original clip was removed for what ever reason by its previous owner. It has zero damage and a jeweler could easily fit a replacement if you really wanted. But for me the Swan clip looks fabulous. I have a gold Ideal Waterman clip like the Blue Ripple 94 I have for sale. Tried it on and it just seemed too dated and old fashion some how for this pen. The Swan clip seems a perfect length and in my eyes looks better than the original clip it would have had.
Other than the missing clip this pen is in astonishing condition. I know it has colour patina but forget that. This pen has no dents, scratches or bite marks etc. The Waterman imprints are deep and very crisp as new. Never polished. This pen would be MINT was it not for the patina and clip.It is also a good senior sized pen with excellent width. Similar to the Blue 94 rubber ripple I am also selling. 12.8cm or 5 inch capped. It does not have a number I can see on its tail. So what model is it exactly? I am not 100% sure as I have never seen one quite like this. It closest resembles a Patrician Onyx Marble for both the celluloid colour and inner hatch or finger print pearl design used and the Black cap section under the gold plated RARE cap ring band. The ring band is also one I have not seen before.
The Nib. Very rare REG U.S. Number 4 size RED Key hole FULL Flex Medium to Medium Fine line. (Large Nib) Trust me Nibs do not get any better than this. If its true flex your after buy this pen. I am going to stick my neck on the line. This nib is the best soft to medium Flex Nib you have ever used or your money back! Forget New York 1900-1925 Nibs. Forget Swan number 1 and 2 nibs even forget 1930 to 50s Montblanc this nib rules number 1. There I've said it.
I have used these RED keyhole nibs before and none have had such perfect flex, These Red keyhole nibs are normally found on the Red Rubber Ripple Number 7 Waterman's etc. As I have never seen one of these Patrician type celluloid pens before I am unsure whether it came from the factory with this superb nib or has been added later? All I know is I nearly confiscated this nib as its worth is huge in its own right. However this pen kept growing on me until I had to leave as I found. This pen is a charmer..... Its new owner will gain a true treasure... Warts and all.... Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this is a rare masterpiece.... Nothing writes better. This ones worth breaking the bank for....

Just serviced it works 100% as when new. To fill could not be easier. Simply pull lever down 90 degree and then place nib in ink. Close the lever down flush. Take nib out of ink. Wipe excess. Done. Takes seconds.

This pen is ready to write. Just add ink. Perfect as a gift or treat yourself to a quality fountain pen........
