Vintage Pens – Waterman #7 Yellow

This special vintage pen is a 1930 Waterman #7 “Yellow Banded” lever-filler in Red Ripple with the “Yellow ” cap band and corresponding nib. The Yellow nib is described as: medium “rounded, writes smoothly in any direction, suits southpaws” and right-handed writers as well.

Waterman used a color-coding system so buyers could select their style of nib by ‘color’ – identifiable by the color-coded band on the cap and the label on the nib. It was their answer to Wahl Eversharp’s Personal Point pen.

This vintage pen features gold filled trim. A very late version, with a narrower than usual clip, no cap band and a then new “shovel” lever rather than the “globe” lever. Made from leftover parts as Waterman was converting from hard rubber pens to Celluloid pens (with the introduction of the Patrician). A touch of clip ball brassing, otherwise near mint+.Vintage Pens - Waterman #7 Yellow

      Hello Rubin, thank you for writing. All the pens in the photo sold back in 2017 when Catalog #83 was first published. The good news is that I do have another Pink and another Blue available. $1250 & $750. Very best, Gary
