Waterman 0552 1/2 V – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 0552 1/2V. The gold filled overlay is decent condition with a couple of flaws. There is not a lot of brassing. The one exception is that there is some wear and scratching on the end of the barrel where the cap has been posted repeatedly. Also a bit of the overlay has been chipped off where it ends at the section, which is not an uncommon issue with these pens. There is also a hairline crack on the threads. I have shellacked the section to the barrel to provide the strength to stabilize the crack. It should hold for many years. The Waterman #2 nib is a very smooth and wet XF (0.3mm). It is also a super flex nib that flexes quite easily up to 1.8mm. The nib does have a tiny crack coming from the right of air hole that you probably wouldn’t have noticed if I didn’t say anything. I’ve been using the nib for a while now and it is quite stable.
