    It's a Waterman Man 200 rollerball. In the UK I've seen one fetch 60 brand new & boxed. Otherwise may fetch 40 used.

    The Man 100 and 200 series are very well regarded - really lovely pens. The 200 is a smaller version, the 100 is reasonably hefty.

    Look after this little beauty. I'd suggest it might be lonely - if you see a fountain pen wandering around without a soulmate, make up the set!

    Waterman made it as a fountain pen, rollerball, ballpoint and mechanical pencil. I don't know what the refill is that's in there.

    I won a Mann 200 in a six pen live auction lot.
    There use to be some 13-10 years ago flame wars between Pelikan's change out nib and Waterman's thin nib.

    Outside my two 52's it is my only Waterman, and it's F is as thin as my Pelikan 200's EF.
    I'm not much into real skinny nibs. So for me I added another EF pen for editing.

    However after Japanese pens really came in about a decade ago. After that Pelikan Waterman flame war died, in Japanese nibs are reputed to be even thinner than Waterman.
    I really don't know if modern Waterman is fatter than semi-vintage. Pelikan defiantly is.
