Waterman 52V Red Ripple – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

This Waterman 52V in Red Ripple is in pretty except for one flaw. On one side of barrel between the lever and imprint there is what appears to be a burn mark. It is just a small dent burned into the hard rubber. It blends in very well with the pen. I missed until I did my usual close examination of the pen. The rippled hard rubber is only slightly faded throughout the pen. The imprints are a little warn, but visible. The gold filled trim looks pretty good. There are some nicks and wear on the lever, but no brassing that I could see. Band and ring top both have some light scratching but no brassing. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a nice XF with a nice sweet spot. It flexes nicely up to 1.7mm. I would say that it is on the stiffer side of super flex. But it is quite wet and the feed has no troubles keeping up.
