FPN #1. 1928 Waterman's No. 52V set in Olive Ripple hard rubber. This pen has puzzled me for a few years. The barrel and nib were made in the U.S., but it has a cap that appears to have been made in Canada. The cap lip band is marked "FDW" .375 (for 10 Karat gold and the date mark is a lower case "n", which would be for 1928. I suspect it is a replacement cap. The clip and lever are gold filled, with no brassing. The barrel imprints have wear, but they are legible. The pencil has a capital letter "A" deeply carved into the top end piece, which screws in and could be replaced. The nose has some slack between it and the barrel. The pencil mechanism is working well. Capped the pen measures 4 3/8 inches or 11.1 cm. The nib is a smooth flexible Medium Stub 14K and will make up to about a 1.75 mm line.
Price $325.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

FPN 2. circa 1925 Waterman's No. 454 (sterling silver overlay) in the hand engraved "Vine" pattern. The engraving on this pen is very crisp and sharp, with little or no wear, and sterling overlay Waterman's pens are somewhat difficult to find in this condition. There are no dents or bump marks on the pen that I can see. I believe the Vine engraved pattern is the only one that has engraving on the clip and lever. The only damage I found are a few light scratches on the BHR barrel end, from the cap being posted. The indicia panel has the letters "JEK" engraved in a very English looking Gothic letter style. There is no discoloration to the hard rubber. The nib is a very smooth writing Flexible Fine or Medium. Capped the pen measures 5 3/8 inches or 13.7 cm. The condition is Excellent.
Price $495.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

FPN 3. 1930's Sheaffer's oversize "Premier" Balance pen in black. The only damage that I noticed is a slight bit of a wave in the lever. The barrel imprint is deep. The nib is a smooth writing Fine two tone 14K, with an up-swept tip. It is one of the nibs Sheaffer's made that you can turn upside down to get an extremely fine line. Capped the pen measures 5 1/2 inches or 14.0 cm.
Price reduced to $195.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

Rules, Shipping, Etc.
The usual rules apply, the person sending the first e-mail on an item
~stating intent to purchase~ gets the item. I will give you 5 days to
decide if you like the pen or not. I prefer payment by PayPal but also
accept checks or money orders in USD. I can only accept payment by
PayPal from countries outside the U.S. I ship worldwide, so
international customers are always welcome.
Prices are post paid in the U.S., and will be shipped with a tracking
number and insurance. I normally ship inside the U.S. by U.S.
Postal Service Priority Mail. I also ship to other countries by Priority
Mail which is about $34.00 USD and up to most countries, except Canada,
which is less. I can also ship to other countries by Express International Mail,
if you request it, but it is costly.
Return Policy: I will always allow pens, or other items, to be
returned. If there is a problem I would prefer the chance to fix the problem
or replace the item, when and if possible. Otherwise a full refund
will be offered. If you find a problem and choose to send the item
(pen, mechanical pencil, etc.) to someone else to be corrected, I will
not be responsible for any other problems.
Happy penning!
