I bought this pen on Ebay a few days ago -http://cgi.ebay.co.u...em=140310384109
As you'll see, the seller couldn't say if it was a 220 or a 221. Personally, I wouldn't have a clue. I was attracted by the likely finishing price and the OB nib. The pen arrived today and is very nice. The nib is seriously
It had no converter, so I have a cartridge in at the moment. Do I need a Mont Blanc converter or will any other proprietary converters work in it?
Any ideas how I identify the pen definitively? I can't see any useful identifying features on the pen.
This should be a 221, made between 1971-1979. I've a 220, which is a matt black finished, doing well with a Pelikan convertor.
, it has flat ends, it has two cap rings and it is glossy -> so if
this pen was made between 1970 and 1979 it is a Montblanc 221 and not a 220. So far I agree. But
if this pen was made after 1979 until 1987, and the engraving on the nib looks definately like it, then the Model is called Montblanc "Classic" (not Classique!)
. The "Classic" had exactly the same shape and size of the former 221.
