Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this incredibly rare Montblanc Meisterstuck 161 LeGrand Silver Barley Ballpoint Pen, which comes with a standard Montblanc presentation box (including outer). The pen has regularly used, so some usage marks, but overall it's presented in good condition - the clip has marks associated with the removal of an engraving.
The Silver Barley is one of the rarest non-limited edition Solitaire offerings and was only available for a limited period of time - it's also incredibly sought-after, and for very good reasons. It's also worth noting that other Solitaire models aren't available in LeGrand size.
The barrel and cap are crated from sterling silver, which is then engraved with an intricate guilloche design. The clip has a diamond on it and the appropriate diamond certificate is included. The real star of the show is the mother-of-pearl snowcap, which is rarely see on Montblanc writing instruments, even very limited edition offerings. Both Germany and serial number markings can be found on the clip ring. The pen is fitted with a new refill.
The important details are as follows.. Serial Number and Germany markings.
