Waterman 12 PSF – Good Flex (SOLD)

The 12 PSF was the  predecessor to Waterman 52. It is essentially a 52 but before Waterman standardized it’s numbering system, which would put it pre-1917. It’s is a nice looking pen with a couple of caveats. There is some browning on the pen as the photos indicate as well as brassing on the gold band and clip. A tiny bit on the lever. The pen also has a slight bend in it near the end of the barrel. It’s hard to capture in a photo, but it’s more obvious when you post the cap (which I hate doing on 52’s anyway as it makes just too long of a pen). There also two tiny cracks in the bottom of the cap. The 14kt. gold Waterman #2 nib writes nice with good flex. The line variation is not immense, but what it has is achievable with ease. The nib writes smoothly. The imprint on the back is very clear, though the one on the side can only partly be seen. It has the initials M.G.H. imprinted on the side.
