This is a mid 1950s MB 144. I acquired the pen 3 years ago from a German seller. The pen did not perform up to the standards I had for vintage MB's so I sent it to either Binder or Mike to have them look at it(Its been 3 years, I forget which did the nib work on this pen). Turns out it was in need of a tine alignment and tip touch up. I had it restored to 2.0mm smooth BB to match the barrel imprint. The nib is in perfect shape. The gold shows no brassing. The body has normal micro scratches under a loupe, but normal viewing its in good shape. The cap rings have a slight bend in them. This is due to the celluloid expanding/contracting over the years and moving the gold a bit. I actually thought it was a cool feature of the pen when I purchased it. It displayed the quirkiness of the material. The ink window looks pretty good. It could be better if I spent a week flushing it 100 times, but I dont feel like doing that. Its a beautiful writer that reinforces why people crave this decade of Mont Blancs. The nib is semi-flex, and the new stub BB is awesome to write with. It showcases beautiful variation in lineweight.
