Hop aboard the wayback time machine for a great Waterman #12 fountain pen. From the the late 19-teens or early '20s, it is made of black chased hard rubber. It is an eyedropper filler, and the section unscrews easily. There are no cracks, but you will see various worn clamp marks around the section. You'll see some wear on the chasing, but it isn't unreasonable. The imprint is still legible but a little more faded on the bottom line. To us, the clip looks as if it is silver plated...maybe over nickel? We see wear in the ball that looks like brassing but without brass underneath. It has a flexi nib the write from fine to around 1.2mm wide. Click the headline for a close-up. Again, no crack in the lip of the slip cap. It appears to have a tassie hole in the top of the slip cap. 13.1cm capped.
