Vintage Pens: Waterman C/F Set

Vintage Pens: 1947 Waterman C/F Set
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Waterman hit the market in 1955 with the first modern-era plastic cartridge pen. It was called the Waterman C/F (Cartridge Fill). This is a complete Waterman C/F pen and pencil set still in its box. The pencil advances lead with a twist of its tail, but it needs pressure to help retract the lead. It features some light wear. The vintage pen's cap and barrel also show wear from use. The most noticeable wear is near the nib where gold-plated trim on either side shows heavy brassing. The original 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth medium line! The only problem is that these pens do not take modern Waterman cartridges or converters. You will have to find an old one that still fits that you can refill fill a syringe. Made in Canada. Pen measures 13.5cm capped.
