Waterman 52 1/2V (Factory Italic) – GOOD FLEX (SOLD)

Waterman 52 1/2V (Factory Italic) – Good Flex  (On Ebay)

This a BCHR Waterman 52 1/2 V in decent condition. The BCHR has browned pretty significantly. The chasing is worn though visible. The imprints are also worn though mostly readable. This pen appears to have received a replacement lever at some point in its life as the ring top is rolled gold and the lever is nickel. The lever is in good shape as is the ring top. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a factory italic (about 0.6mm wide). The nib does have some decent flex that comes pretty easy. Italic nibs do enhance the flex nicely and this nib is no exception. A neat little pen.
