I’m selling what can only be considered as one of Montblancs most sought after vintage pens, the  MONTBLANC L139G.
 
Manufactured  around the early 1940’s ? this particular pen features
 
Long ink window which displays wonderful clarity.
 
Rare Palladium nib, writing closer to a fine than a medium and having a nice line variation to it.
 
Nib is supported by the original ski slope flat ebonite feed; both nib and feed are in excellent condition.
 
All gold fittings are in good condition and show a small amount of brassing commensurate with the age of the pen.
 
2 stage Telescopic piston working smoothly plus new cork seal fitted by Francis Gossens
 
The pen was recently handed over to Francis Goossens  (aka Fountainbel) for 2 minor repairs, firstly, over time the MB star had shrunk causing it to come loose, upon which Francis has fitted a new casein star returning it back to like new condition and the second repair was a hairline crack to the end of the barrel which Francis has  repaired by chemical fusion.
Francis has confirmed the process has secured the crack and that he was happy with the outcome.
 
This pen is unique in that it has a cap crown with a recess on its top edge. This is NOT an aftermarket crown; Francis upon fitting the casein star has confirmed the cap crown to be 100% original and describes it as an early version. I have provided a schematic drawing done by Francis which shows the differences between an “Early” and ‘Late” versions and their respective internal construction.
 
This is a rare and beautiful pen, make it yours!!!
Asking price $3500 postage included.
Paypal is the preferred payment.
