Waterman 0852 1/2V  – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a BCHR Waterman 0852 1/2 V.  The “08” in the Waterman numbering system means broad gold-filled band. This pen is in near mint condition. The black hard rubber is jet black. The chasing is very crisp. The imprints look brand new. The pen almost looks brand new. I cannot see any brassing on the trim. The only minor flaw I see is that there is just a bit of browning on the section below the gold band. But you can only see that because the rest of the pen is so black. The initials “T.M.M.” is inscribed in the band. And as for the nib! I seriously almost didn’t put this one up for auction. The nib is one of the most responsive super flex nibs I have had. The snap back is just phenomenal. I liked it so much I couldn’t resist trying out my new R&K Alt-Goldgrun in it. This pen will not disappoint.
