Waterman 52 1/2 Silver Filigree – GoodFlex (On Ebay)

I’m a sucker for small ring tops, and an even bigger sucker for silver ones. This is a beautiful 452 1/2 V, but it’s not in perfect condition. The hard rubber beneath the silver is browned some. The end of the barrel has a scratch and some wear. There are some teeth marks on the section. But the biggest flaw is a chip out of threads (see pics). The cap screws in just fine, and the black does blend together fairly well. But it’s not like you wouldn’t ever notice. The nib is a nice and smooth F that flexes up to 1.9mm. A little too stiff to be a Super Flex, but still a very nice flexing nib.
