Waterman 12 Patent Statement On Cap Vice Body

Hello, I recently purchased a slip cap, eye dropper filler, Waterman 12. The pen has two decorative repousse bands with the same decoration as the pen in the link. In fact it looks almost exactly like the pen for sale at the following link. The only difference is that the patent statement is on the cap instead of the body. Was this done at different times in production? Does the location of the patent date statement identify a time of production range or was the statement placed in both locations during the same production runs? Thank you for your help.

Thank you for posting the link. I will take a couple of pictures at the weekend. I am thinking that the pen is actually smaller than a normal 12 and that the statement might not have fit between the bands. I have a 12PSF at work. I will bring it home to compare.

Some early No 1x series pens carried the cone cap patent date "Pat May 24, 1898" - on the cap. This would be in addition to the standard barrel stamp of the time (understanding that some didn't have one). I have a 12 1/2 (smaller than a 12) with a single, centrally located barrel band, which has the standard three line "globe" imprint on the cap. This is likely due to lack of room on the barrel.

 

What does your cap say?

Shouldn't phonics be spelled with an f?

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
