Waterman 12 PSF – Medium Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 12 PSF with original box. 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. The first number on the model imprint is worn. It looks like a 1 (thus model 12), but there is no “PSF,” so perhaps it’s just a “52.” The pen is dark brown. Chasing and imprints are worn but visible and mostly readable. It is missing the clip (see pics). Lever has some plate wear, though it is still shiny. The nib doesn’t quite have the line variation to make it a “good flex.” It writes a very fine line. It has a little bit of a tooth, which is not uncommon for XXF nibs, but it isn’t what I would call scratchy.
