Mine would be a vintage 128PL. You don't see them offered for sale that often. One has just come up for auction on eBay, but I have blown my pen budget for the next two months :-(.

That's more than I've ever seen for a platinum series.......but I guess that the bowtie clip
and perfect "bullseye" pattern to the platinum more than make up for it.

I would say a Jules Verne would be my MB dream pen. Nothing like the blue.



+1 on the Verne -- for me with a broad nib. It's "bluer than blue" as the song goes. Unless I get a Woolf with broad nib first. Then I'm shopping for an EF.

John,

It is more than just the tie clip. It is the model coupled with the PL celluloid that is driving the desirability rating of this pen. MB 128s rarely come up for sale (this is the first one I have seen since I became interested in vintage MBs). The relative scarcity of the model coupled with the sought after PL celluloid adds to its cachet. The auction for this pen could easily approach $4,000.

Thanks for the info,Mark. So it's the fact that a 1-series button filler with the
largest nib in the series is scarcer(I was going to say rarer but decided against
it)than say,a 2-series piston filler in platinum with a mid-size nib from the same
series?
