Waterman 15 Eyedropper  – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 15 eyedropper. These are much rarer than 12s and even 14s. It is a good condition with some browning to the body, less so to the cap. The chasing is worn but visible. Again, much less wear on the cap. Imprints are still pretty good. The gold bands show no signs of brassing. There are no cracks or teeth marks. There is a very, very small chip out of the bottom edge of the section, but it really isn’t a problem. The #5 14kt. nib is a nice large XF nib. This was a tough nib to grade. It is a bit stiff to be a super flex, but it has good range and very good responsiveness. So it is right on the border between “good” and “super” flex.
