Waterman 52 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman 52 in fairly condition. The body has browned some and the chasing on the barrel is quite warn. The chasing on the cap is much better. The side imprint is worn but readable. The “52” on the back is crisp and red. The lever, I believe, has little to no nickel plating left. The “Ideal” on the lever is almost  worn off. It’s a clip less cap (by design), and it oddly has a hole for a ring on the cap. This would be the only 52 I’ve seen with such a hole. It is without scratches or cracks. The nib is a nice, smooth F that has significant flex to BBB (1.8mm). The feed is quite wet while flexing, so no worries about railroading.
