This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no dings, dents, or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the gorgeous Gold Filled Clip and Cap Banding which, displays absolutely no brassing. The cap banding is stamped with, "WATERMAN MADE IN FRANCE with a French Hallmark". I have cleaned, buffed and polished the barrel. I also cleaned the internal components of this pen. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the barrel or cap. This Waterman Gentleman Fountain Pen measures 5 9/16" in length capped and 6 5/16" posted.
This pen is hallmarked on the cap, section, and barrel with Franch Sterling Hallmarks.
I have tested the ink converter filling mechanism with ink and fills as it should.
The Waterman NIB is an 18K/750 Ideal NIB. The NIB has a medium point measuring roughly 0.88mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a medium to double broad stroke/line. The writing sample provided in the image has the medium stroke measuring at .86mm and the double broad stroke measures roughly 1.39mm under medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. This NIB writes extremely smooth and such a pleasure to write with. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton cloth that I used to polish/clean the barrel and cap.
This is a beautiful Waterman Gentleman Fountain Pen in the Barley Corn Pattern. It is in impeccable condition and I would grade this fine writing instrument in Excellent to Near Mint Condition. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
