More detailed description about this superb pen.... This wonderful Waterman 42 Safety Pen was made in New York U.S.A. around 100 years ago.... The pen is made from hard mixed red and black rubber. This swirl or wood grain pattern went on to be known as Ripple pattern from the 1920s onward. This pen is a raresurvivorindeed. These Safety Pens are an unusual variation on the Eye Dropper fill pens. They have a retracting nib. Twist the end of the pen or place the cap on the end and turn. The nib twists in and out. Very clever system. All inner workings are present and the pen retracts and extends the nib as it should. Rare. All parts original. Will only need new seals if to be used daily. I only ever nib dipped this chap.(Seals are easy to buy on if you wanted. Nice little project that can be done yourself for 10usd.) I do not have any in stock is the only reason I never fit. Overall this is a great condition fully functioning rare Waterman. Writes with a sublime flexible fine line. The flex in the nib allows for line width variation. Add a little pressure and this nib easily spreads to medium line. Add a little more and broad line etc... When in an experienced hand this makes for the most beautiful handwriting possible. Simply Superb nib. The pen has no deep scratches, dents or bite marks etc. Only lightest of wear you would expect of a 100 year old. The colour is still rich and deep with no color fade. Rare. The original and very rare Ideal logo Cap Clip is also signed Waterman. The barrel center reads, WATERMAN'S......REG. U.S. IDEAL logo. PATT. OFF........FOUNTAIN PEN.The pen's lower and turning section is also full of Waterman stamps. Made in USA etc. It also has Number, 42 on the bottom. 42 is probably its model number. This pen is a superb all original in collectors condition. Fills with an eye dropper which I will include. Perfect as a gift or treatyourselfto a rare collectible.
