English Waterman W5 - Green Striated (SB 645)

Nib: Medium 14 Kt

The W5 was a top line Waterman pen in the 1940s, while fountain pens were still *the* writing instrument. They're really pretty. This one is in very good condition, with one notable flaw - the lever box was probably replaced before it reached my hands, and the tab sticks out. You can see it in one of the photographs. It has a nice medium 14 Kt nib. The plastic and imprint on the pen are in excellent shape. There's a tiny bit of brassing at the end of the clip. 5", 127 mm.
