RARE WATERMAN SILVER OVERLAY NO. 452 FOUNTAIN PENThis is a beautiful Vintage Waterman Ideal Fountain Pen no. 452 with silver overlay. This pen appears to be in overall good condition with very minor wear. T is still a trace of WATERMAN'S FOUNTAIN PEN NY on the lower part of the pen in black (usually worn on most pens). T is a small mark between the wording that with a loupe looks like a small scratch or chip. The silver overlay is in great condition with Sterling marked on the body of the pen around the top and Waterman's on the top. CLIP-CAP is marked IDEAL (with the globe logo) Pat. Sept 26, 05, Sterling . T are vertical initials on the body of the pen on the silver: P R B. The fountain pen measures approx 5 1/4" in length. The fountain pen is marked with 452 on the bottom in the black. The nib is gold and marked Waterman's reg.U.S PAT OFF MADE IN U.S.A. I have not tried the pen and assume that the bladder needs to be replaced. I have the reserve set at $75. Buyer to pay shipping and insurance. Please check out my other fountain pen auctions. Good luck and happy bidding.
