So I'm pretty new to fountain pens with only about 3 months of experience using them. All of my pens until now have been cheap Jinhao or Pilot Metropolitans.
I've recently become very interested with Vintage pens. I've never had a gold nibbed pen at all let alone a nice vintage pen and the allure of a semi-flex nib and having a piece of history was too much to resist.
So I've been checking eBay over and over and over again lately looking for a good deal which I couldn't find. SO I eventually just took a chance and hit purchase on something. I paid about $40 for this pen (Which im pretty sure is way to much?) and its a Waterman pen or more correctly I guess looking at the barrel Waterman's (Which looking it up is the same company thankfuly) But I didn't look up the different models of Waterman pens to much before buying..
Also are some of these Waterman nibs more sought after than others? the nib seems like an italic nib and looks to be in ok-ish condition tho either a tine is to narrow on onme side of the slit was cut off center a bit.
Is this a Waterman's Crusader "open" ? And instead of making another thread for repair section does anyone know if this uses a 16 size sack? Shame the sack on the pen has a small tear right below the section where the lever hits it. To bad I can't just put some glue there, right? lol. I do think I paid to much but I don't know what do you guys think as a first vintage pen?
Here are some pictures. They are hosted on imgur they are high res if you click them and look at them on imgur
