Waterman 0552 1/2 V – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 0552 1/2 V – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This Waterman 0552 1/2 V is in overall good condition. There are a few very minor dings. For example, one looks like a tiny pin prick size ding. There is no personalization (which atypical of these pens). The floral etching looks amazing and is in great shape. On the edge of the barrel where it meets up with the section, there are a couple spots of brassing due to capping and upcapping. Also there is some wear, but not really brassing, one the end of the barrel from posting the cap. Lever is in great condition. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a lovely writing XXF nib. Very nice writer for such a fine nib. Had a little trouble grading the flex on this one. I would call it on the lower end of “super flex.” The range doesn’t go huge and ease of flex is good but not superb, but that XXF makes it nice and snappy providing for excellent line variation and crisp flex. Overall, a beautiful ring top.
