    Lots of them are unlabeled and luck of the draw. So far all the ones I own have been one of a kind, and all best.

    I have several L'Etalon gold nibs fitted into Waterman Phileas pens and all of those nibs are excellent writers. Really smooth nibs.

    Best is relative, mostly also depended on the personal preferences.

    Imo there are a lot awesome vintage Waterman nibs out there.

    I own some vintage Waterman pens, out of these this tiny 12 1/2 has based on my preferences the „best“ nib (for me).

    I consider this a century old little pen as one of my all time favorite pens


    Another awesome vintage Waterman I own is this safety 45.

    So you will get very different answers what’s the best depending whom you will ask.
