PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION! I obtained this classic recently and it appears to have been put away in someones office desk drawer. This is the coveted Holy Grail rare 1955-59 Transitional Celluloid Montblanc 149 with the two silver ring cap!! This pen has seen its day and was obviously someones daily writer!!
It isnt pretty and there are two hairline cracks on the cap. (See third and forth pictures, look at the cap). Although there are two cracks on the cap, the pen screws in tight.
There are scratches on the barrel. The ink window has a nice amber tint with some ink residue. The Nib is a delicious narrow shoulder 14C Fine Flex Nib in excellent condition!!
I dipped it in ink and it writes beautifully!! As far as I can see, the pen doesnt leak ink but Im sure it can use servicing from a reputable Vintage Montblanc repairman.
The piston works fine and draws up water nicely! Heres your chance to own this classic for immediate use or to get it fully restored, your choice!! This one is worthy of your attention even with its imperfections!! Dont let it get away!!The item "1955-59 Celluloid Montblanc 149-Silver Rings-14C Fine Flex Nib!
