Waterma 0552 1/2 – Super Flex/ Wet Noodle   (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 0552 1/2 (a 52 with thinner profile and a gold filled overlay). The pen is in very good condition with the exception that it is missing the clip. The gold filled overlay has some light surface wear throughout but little to no brassing. The lever does have a little brassing. Imprints on the end are worn but mostly readable. The black rubber that gets covered by the cap when posted is slightly darker than the unposted section between the overlay and cap. But the BHR is still mostly quite black. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a great nib that is either a wet noodle or very close to a wet noodle. It writes normally as a very wet and smooth 0.4mm F and flexes very nicely up to 2.omm with minimum effort. If it had just a bit more responsiveness I would definitely label it a noodle. Nevertheless, a very nice vintage Waterman.
