Thanks SO much to ralfstc, who sent me this pen, which I LOVE: from researching online, I believe it's a Waterman's 352 Stalwart, made in Canada in the 1940's. According to ralfstc, the nib was modified by John Sorowka (Oxonian).
Ralf sent me this pen in thanks for a fountain pen drawing I sent him which was in thanks for the sample of Lamy Dark Lilac he sent me. :-)
I love fountain pen people!
It's my first Waterman and also my first pen with an ink sac - I had to look up online how to use it! Any advice/tips re: maintenance welcome. :-)
And again, THANK YOU, RALFSTC! So looking forward to writing with my new pen. I've inked it up with Iroshizuku Kon Peki.

Nice!  What nib size was it?  Do you think it is suitable for drawing?

I love the lighting on this, very 3 dimensional. I'd assume you set it up like this on purpose. Very nice 

I love how it was set up to make the drawing seem like it was riding the pen like a surfboard.

FlippyThePen: I'm not sure what size nib it is. I looked at it but couldn't see an "F" or "M" etc.

Mike.jane: Thank you! And no, I didn't set the lighting on purpose. I suppose I should have!
