    Default Waterman 52 red ripple set fair price?

    Hi guys, not an expert in Waterman pens but Iíve stumbled across a 52 red ripple fountain pen and pencil set for $150. They seem to be in pretty good condition and will probably just need a new sac. Does anyone know what a good price for this is? Pictures below

    Not my brand but make sure the lever box is good and look carefully for cracks in the barrel threads.

    That looks more like Waterman's Woodgrain pattern, a precursor to Ripple. Condition looks pretty good, and the Woodgrain is a good bit scarcer than Ripple. Price seems good, as the lever box looks intact. Looks like there is some length to those tines, as well. Did you get it?

    Unfortunately not, the seller informed me that the lever box is broken, and I may be an amateur repairer, but Iím not taking on a broken lever box

    Lever boxes can get expensive, especially solid gold ones.
