    Very pretty! I need to be a bit of scouting - I have a few Waterman celluloids in the pen chest, but no photos of them (yet)

    Nice pen looks great, If it can receive a more a bit more polishing so it looks wonderful.

    Thanks! If by that you mean the Nacre Patrician, then the orange should be light cream (mine is sadly discolored). Really hard to find a clean example of this color.

    Not the Patrician, I meant the right-most pen in your top photo.

    Oh, I see. That's a favorite of mine too as it's of some historical interest, being heatstamped on the side 'Presented by I.W.O.'

    Speaking of 92s, here's a Lizard and Snake to add to the mix (Canadian pens have the double barrel bands):
