Just wanted to let the Waterman fans that I just found an antique waterman display case on liveauctioneers. It is a beautiful case, and I'm sure it will go for far more than I can afford with kids in college....but someone who loves the pens should get it. Auction is middle of Nov., lots of time to drool and dream! Attaching a pic for those that just wanna dream.

I think you posted it in the right place.  I can visualize the case full of Crusaders.

The case is a 6 Dozen Pen Case and it is missing the three trays that held the pens.  There should also be a drawer in the back to hold ink.

 

I happen to have one (with reproduction trays) that could be delivered to the LA or SF Pen Show at a quite attractive price.

I know that there are some of you who can visualize what this looked like new and sitting, filled with pens and inks, on a shop's counter. The rest of us can only dream of what it looked like. What a treasure.
