The lines in the barrel are not cracks its the way the light reflects off. Also the nib is marked Waterman's 75 made in USA. I believe its gold but its not marked. From what I can find they did not mark the nib as gold because it was 80 percent covered. Thanks for any help

A Waterman Taperite-ish sort of pen. ?????

That looks like a Waterman Taperite Stateleigh.

And yes, I believe they made these to compete with Parker 51, so that nib should be gold (and it looks like one also).

Sure looks like a Waterman's Taperite Stateleigh (or Corinth), based on the cap markings.

I know there is an article (page) out there on the Internet that discusses the changes in the caps, but for the life of me I can't find it right now . . .

Here are a couple links (and an ad) to look at and decide for yourself;



Best of Luck!
