In order to fund other vintage ventures, up for sale is this MB safety 01 faceted.
The pen is in good condition for its age (90 years old aprox) and in working condition. A description from cap top to turning knob :-)
1. Caseine star: is complete, but it looks as old caseine looks: brittle and granulose. It is NOT brittle at all, is pretty solid, but it looks like that. Is normal in caseine this age.
2. Cap. It bears the inscription Mont Blanc with the mountain in between. The inscription is clear and neat. BUT PLEASE NOTE that  the cap has a hairline crack, totally stable, in the lid. It doesn´t affect function, it doesn`t leak. NOTE that the cap seems to have been shortened, perhaps as a result of a more serious crack: the cap on these pens usually goes up to the faceted body.
3. Nib. Original. It writes rather F or EF. Just a little flex, not much.
4. Feed. Original, perfectly working.
5. Body, godd condition, good threads, some marks in the rear. It is obviously not new.
6. Corks and seal have been replaced by an expert in Barcelona.
The pen is in working condition, it retains inks as it shlould, the nib retracts prefectly. No leaks when writing and not leaks when capped.
The ebonite is black and sniny for tye most part, there is no brownish ends or spots.
Perhaps not a full collector's piece because the cap has been shortnede, but all in all a very nice pice for those wanting to try a 90 year ols safety MB pen.
It was bought at a renowned shop in Barcelona April this year. If the new owner wnts the invoice, it will go with the pen.
My price: 275 250 225 175 USD. That includes Paypal fees and shipping (registered spanish post with tracking, uninsured)
Contact by PM. Cheers!
