I would say cap and barrel are different pattern.

 

D.ick

Correct, cap is an Amazon, barrel a Marble. I have mentioned this to the seller but await a reply.

 

The nib has corrosion so the price is somewhat high when both problems are considered.

Description does not state in downright, but implies, falsely, that this is an Edson. At least the pic shows otherwise.

Any modern Waterman made by Lewis Edson Waterman would have rarity going for it.  If Lewis actually signed it - I'm doing the buy-it-now.  I'll message the seller to find out.

Oh dear. Talking about Frankenpen.  Cap and barrel not fitting, nib and feed not fitting (or the feed very badly placed) And the tines on that nib look like they have been straightened.

 

at current price (1 quid) not bad for parts.

How odd, I had just copied the very same auction to put on my Chuckle topic. Then I come here and minjiha2 has stolen my thunder....I was going to say, There's something not quite right about this pen, I just can't make out what it is.

 

But this one takes the biscuit.

Odd little pen that one.....

 

I do find the Frankenpen attractive, but then I'm into "personalized" items....

I waited so long until I could post something here! As soon as I saw the Frankenpen, I said to my self "Yeeeeeeeees!" 

 

By the way, the second pen looks ghostly as well...

The second pen has changed, the original listing had the wrong picture loaded............it was an old, rusty,  Huntley and Palmer biscuit tin.

Well there is this Edson. Why do I not get a warm feeling about it.

 

The lifted photo, the lifted description stating Unused, Uopened.

 

Also look at the sellers other items for sale, Clothes & 3D printers but Neck Restoration Cream....what the h*#%$ is that.

Did I just do a bad thing?

Scroll down to listing.  It's the light green "Waterman" with the poorly fitting gold cap.

 

This is what happens when you are looking at a pen using an iPhone and can't really see what you're getting.

That's a CC, a cheaper version of the CF but takes the same carts and converters. Good luck hunting one up for this pen. It still has the chalk mark for the M nib. Great deal for $10.

Well, I panicked and asked for my payment to be refunded, which the seller did. I liked the colors, but the nib looked strange to me and it looked like the cap didn't fit down far enough. I would have no idea how to find any obscure carts, so I think the refund is the best course of action for me to take.

Thanks for the info, Uncle Red - I'll let the seller know what the pen actually is.

That's pretty funny.  Neck restoration cream might be that stuff that tightens up double chins, etc.

Special Laureat at £130 it must be....ahhh yes I can now see why.

 

Specialy tempered stainless steel, silver like glow. Actually it is the Silver Plated Guillochie model.

 

The Waterman Laureat, the predecessor of the Le Man 100, which are nearly identical pens ???????????

Who says women are the only ones to enjoy extreme fashion. I wonder how many men tripped on their own pant legs and did a face plant in front of the people they were trying to impress.
