I purchased this pen and am eagerly awaiting its arrival. Does anyone know the model? All I know is it has a #2 nib and looks to be BHR. Not sure if lever fill or eye dropper. All the waterman numbering system confuses me so if anyone has some info, that would be much appreciated  :)

Perhaps just a 52. The 2 being the nib size. When you receive it look at the end of the barrel for a number.

I think I see a lever. I would do as Force said - look at the barrel butt when it arrives, there should be a number on it. Considering the smooth (non chased) barrel and cap, you should be able to bring the colour and shine back on this pen pretty easy with a 12000 buff stick. I love restoring BHR pens :)

Does the barrel have Waterman imprints?

From what I can see of the filler, it doesn't look Waterman to me.  Could be a BHR pen with a Waterman nib.

Don't feel bad. I'm old; I'm meh about most things.

If that is BHR  do NOT soak it in water.  There was a recent post in this forum about this.

Hi guys,

I am doing some research on several vintage fountain pens. The term "BHR" occures again and again and.... But I have absolutely no idea what that is. Did some searching and found this thread here. Would somebody please be so kind and explain to me what BHR means? Thank you very much in advance.

 

Best,

Jan

There is also RHR (Red Hard Rubber).

 

Also other colours but without specific abbreviation, and also striated versions like woodgrain, mottled etc.
