    You and JBB! I love getting envelopes with great old postage stamps. Envelopes like this always make me smile.

    I just came across your artwork and exhibition of your Waterman 52. I've always been attracted to the pen, but have never taken the next step and acquired one. Your pictures have got me going again - the stunning ink you chose was the icing on the cake. An inspired presentation all around!

    Christof, what an eye you have for form and color. Love your homage to Switzerland today.

    According to the cap rings and the nib, I'd say between 1950 and 1954.

    There has been a version with single cap band as well, probably a later one (1954-1956). There has been also a 400N and 400NN:

    I'm only misssing the 400N...
