Waterman 52 1/2V Cardinal Red – SUPER  FLEX  (On Ebay)

Very pretty Waterman 52 1/2V in “cardinal red” hard rubber. I know it’s orange, but for whatever reason the folks at Waterman called it “cardinal red.” This is the second one I’ve had in a couple of weeks, which is a bit strange as it is the rarest of the Waterman hard rubber types.  It too is in pretty good condition. It does have some typical light scratching, but it’s much less noticeable than on celluloid. The gold filled trim is in good condition with a bit of brassing on the band. I see none on the lever or ring. The imprint on the side is good and crisp. The one toward the end of the barrel is worn a bit, but “52 1/2V” is very crisp.  The 14kt. Wateramn #2 nib is a very soft XF with Super Flex capabilities. It flexes up to 1.6mm, and the flex comes very easy.
