Vintage Pen Mail - Parker 51 and Waterman 54

Today I share the two latest pen acquisitions. In the mail just today I got my Parker 51 Vacumatic back from being restored. I had purchased it some time ago, but it was going to need more of a restoration than I can personally perform. I finally sent it out for repair and got it back just today. I will show you it being inked and writing for the first time. I also recently got a Waterman 54...or did I?
Here is the link to the video supplied by Antique Digger of the restored pen. https://youtu.be/3dR7l3m4WRQ
