6520: Waterman Remex Self-Filler No. 101: one of Waterman's earliest self-fillers, and so rare that most advanced collectors have never seen a complete example; construction is all-aluminum, with a hard rubber press-fit section assembly, sleeve rotates rather than slides to expose filler bar; this example is new old stock, and the hardened sac is preserved with the pressure bar laced in place exactly according to the William Ferris patent 799,897 of 1905 (Ferris' patent 950,817 of 1910 is the one covering the usual Waterman sleeve-filler design); 14 cm long, superficial shop wear, "PAT. APPL'D FOR" imprint.

13094: Waterman token/gaming counter: off-white, 4 cm in diameter, composition material, some usage chips. The black version has long been known, as it was mentioned in a 1908 advertisement as a promotional item, a good luck token. Other colors were virtually unknown until the discovery of a few small caches several years ago. It has been suggested that these were made for Waterman president Frank D. Waterman's personal use. We have a few, but this listing is for one token only.

Patent date imprint refers to William Ferris's patent 799,897 of 1905 (Ferris' patent 950,817 of 1910 is the one covering the usual Waterman sleeve-filler design), narrow feed, Remex nib; scattered nicks and shallow dings to the cap and rotating sleeve.

11368: Waterman 14 PSF: clipless black chased hard rubber lever-filler, 13.4 cm long, nickel plated trim, a rare example of one of the very first Waterman lever-fillers with a number of distinctive features, including the oval recess for the lever end, a sprung pressure bar assembled with a rivet and with a barrel-shaped anchor end, and a lever box stop consisting of a bent-over tab (discussed in this article). Lever-fillers marked "PSF" were made only from 1915 to 1917; of these, only a small number had sprung pressure bars and raised barrel threads; and of these, only a tiny fraction belong to the very first series with the features noted above, making them at least as rare as Waterman coin-fillers. Hard rubber is worn and faded but sound with all imprints visible.

Lever is an old replacement in nickel silver rather than sterling. As is typical with English Waterman overlays, the end number lacks a digit in the hundreds place, and the barrel overlay is pinned in place. These pins are usually not readily visible; probably due to the work done to replace the lever, they are clearly apparent here.
