Waterman 52 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This Waterman 52 is in BCHR. The hard rubber has faded some to a dark brown. The chasing is worn but still has some texture. The imprints are also readable but worn. The cap chasing is either worn smooth or this is a cap from a 52 without chasing and not original to the pen. The also has no clip.  There is some plate loss to the edges of the nickel plated lever. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a smooth writing XF (0.3mm), though a bit dry with normal writing. It has some good flex going up to 1.8mm with pretty good responsiveness. However, the ease of flex could be better. I grade this as a lower tier super flex nib.
