This is a genuine Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 fountain pen in excellent and lightly used condition, with an 18ct gold 2-tone medium nib and gold trim. The authenticity of the pen is demonstrated with the light test - genuine black precious resin Montblanc pens glow red when backlit - fakes glow blue or brown.The pen also carries a laser-inscribed unique number on the clip band. The only marks I could find under magnification were around the ink window - some slight cap rubbing (see photo). Otherwise the pen is glossy and has no damage, cracks or gouges, and the metalwork is all clean and without brassing or bends or scuffs. The piston filler is working perfectly, drawing and expelling water (it is untested in ink).
In dip testing the nib was the usual Montblanc "wow" - simply glorious. The pen is clean and ready to be brought back in to work. The instruction booklet is as-new.
