Ultrasonically cleaned the NIB and feed. Hand cleaned the inside of the barrel, cap, and section with mineral oil. Replaced the old rubber sac with a new silicone sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Ring Top, Cap Band, and Ideal Lever Box Assembly along with the Ideal New York 14K #2 NIB. The 18K Gold Filled Cap Banding displays very minor wear along the top edge and the lever arm displays minor wear as well. The feed is in the cardinal red hard rubber.
This fountain pen is made from cardinal red hard rubber. The barrel has a worn imprint that is non-existent. The only imprint we have is on the butt end of the fountain pen which displays the 52V imprint.
The threads on the cap and barrel are always securing the cap to the barrel. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. There are no cracks or repairs to the hard rubber. This Waterman 52V measures 4 1/2" in length capped and 5 5/8" posted.
This Waterman 52V has a 14K #2 New York Ideal Nib. The tip/point of the Nib/iridium has a medium point measuring .80mm when measured with digital calipers. This #2 Waterman Nib has great flexibility from a medium (.76mm) to triple broad (2.18mm) stroke/line variation when measured with digital calipers. The Nib provides a very smooth writing experience that one should enjoy very much! The writing sample in the images was produced from the actual pen that is listed for sale by dipping the Nib in Parker Blue-Black Quink Ink.
These Waterman Red Cardinal Hard Rubber Fountain Pens are increasingly difficult to find. This Waterman 52V would grade in Fine to Very Fine condition (above average user grade) and is only due to the lack of an imprint on the barrel. This Waterman Cardinal 52V is ready to write with or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
