A Taperite Crusader set with dark plum barrels and metal “Lumalloy” caps with chrome clips and lever, made in the USA c1947.
The imprint on both pen and pencil is crisp “WATERMAN’S MADE IN U.S.A”.
The 14k nib is a typically soft fine point, a very nice writer.
Closed the pen is 12.5cm and when the cap is posted, 14.8cm.
These are modest pens but this is a very nice set to use and in excellent condition.
CONDITION: excellent, just the usual minor marks from use, very crisp imprint, no dings or brassing of the trim. The pen fills and writes very nicely and the pencil appears to have had little use with an almost intact eraser under the cap.
