I received this collection of Waterman Ringtops to sell on consignment. These are gorgeous pens from the first three decades of the 20th century, designed for women to hang on a neck sash. They're closer to jewelry than a Senior Duofold, but they do write (often well!). All these are lever fillers and they write as they should, given the limitations of the smaller ("lady-like") size. The pens' owner had extremely good taste, and this is a good way to get overlay pens in your collection without a second mortgage. In the labels, 5xx means solid gold, 05xx means gold filled. 4xx means sterling silver. The 5 in the tens column denotes a lever filler. And the ones column is the nib size. "1/2" means a thin barrel, while "V" means a short pen.
