Waterman 52 –WET NOODLE  (SOLD)

Here a great Waterman 52 wet noodle in BCHR. The pen is in good condition. The BCHR has faded some to a dark brown and does have some small spots here and there of lighter discoloration. The chasing is worn but still has some decent texture. The imprints are worn but readable. The inscription “Mrs. J.W. Rinker 1245 E. Oak Street” is imprinted in the side of the barrel above the Waterman imprint. The nickel plated lever is in great condition with little to no plate loss. There is and was no clip to this pen. The real story of this pen, though, comes with the nib, which is just phenomenal. The Waterman #2 is a paintbrush flex noodle with a huge range and good, springy, responsive action. I’ve listed it as an XXF, but it’s pretty hard to grade because it takes an extremely light hand to write without flexing. It goes up to 2.5mm easily. It is not an easy nib to control because of its extreme ease of flex. This is an extremely rare noodle nib of your dreams.  SOLD
