This EF example with FULL Flex is the most sough after of ALL the 250 nibs so. The rarest, most desirable and most creative to write with. Montblanc nibs simply do not get ANY better or sought after than this. Mint condition Nib has ZERO damage or repairs etc.
Its Iridium tips are perfect and good to last several more lifetimes. ONLY pre order L139 made before 1939 have this central Ring Imprint. These 3 Ring bands are the FIRST time Montblanc EVER used the 3 rings band design.These 1st issue have UNIQUE font and only use 2/3rds of the Central Band for MONTBLANC-MASTERPIECE with a 1/3 being Blank/Empty space on the ring. Made in Germany between 1938-39 ONLY in this exact form. This wonderful Montblanc is a TRUE first issue.
These early model 139 were the first piston filler pen Montblanc EVER made. 1st launched in 1938-39 these Telescopic Piston pens are where it all began for Montblanc in terms of having a unique filling system they designed them selves. Prior to the model 13x ALL earlier Montblanc pens were copies of other manufacturers pens.
Eye Droppers, Safety, Lever, Nibs and Feeds all copied Waterman and Parker Duofold for their Button fill pens etc. Although other manufacturers like Pelikan made Piston fill pens 7 years before Montblanc it was the Metal Telescopic Piston Montblanc invented that was head and shoulders above everyone else's. However it was so expensive and complex to manufacture Montblanc stopped production in 1958 and reverted to the much cheaper to manufacture and simpler Pelikan design plastic single action piston. So only Meisterstuck pens made between 1936-58 have these fabulous Telescopic Metal Pistons.
These were also the first Montblanc pens to use Celluloid. The Piston Housing and Tail End are BHR (Black Hard Rubber).The rare three tone 250 14C nib was ONLY made from 1936 to 1938 and was ONLY ever issued to Meisterstuck/Masterpiece models 129 & 139. After 1938 Germany had a ban on Gold manufacture of ANYTHING non military.
So from 1938-45 Montblanc 250 Nibs were made of Steel and a very few in Palladium. After 1945 they re numbered the nibs from 250 to 139.
So this pen for sale can ONLY date between 1938 and early 1939. Just serviced with new cork.
