Up for sale is a MB139. Produced from 1939-51, it preceded the legendary MB 149. This pen sports a fine semi-flex nib that writes wet like most Montblancs produced during this period. This pen is all celluloid which suggests it was one of the later model produced since earlier models came with ebonite/hbr parts. The piston mechanism is all metal also. Two silver cap bands are tight and straight as well as the main cap band. The clip has small amount of discoloration but white star is clear and bright. The all important ink window has some ambering but lines are still dark and fully visible. The cap threads and posts smoothly. Of course this pen has brand new cork installed by a famous German restorer. While the pen is in excellent condition, it does have a small visible crack on the feed. This flaw does not affect the function of the feed so it was not replaced. Beside, these "ski slope" feeds are very difficult to find. I am asking $3000 OBO plus shipping. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
