Waterman's collectors stand back. Our Waterman 0512 1/2 VP is a stunner in the hard-to-find Pansy Panel design! As classic a ringtop from the Jazz Age as you'll find, our's has an impressive lack of wear. Yes, there's brassing on the top edge around the cap. And in spite of a few impressions...dent is too strong a word...this pen looks amazingly fresh. It is an eyedropper filler. Click the headline for close ups of the design and nib. Its original 14k gold nib writes a semi-flex line that starts on the border of extra fine and fine and then opens up to about 1 mm. Visible barrel-side tail imprint, and there is still a trace of orange paint in the flat-tail imprint. You'll even find a faded imprint on the bottom of the inkfeed. We can make out the word "August," but it looks as if there is more. 10.7cm capped.
