Pelikan M400 start production in 1982, and in this shape was produced to 1997.
At first glance, the pens look alike.
Nibs look alike too.
The first difference. Pelikan 400 - feed hardrubber. Pelikan M400 - feed plastic.
The second difference. Imprints on the barrel.
Pelikan 400 – „GÜNTER WAGNER GERMANY”
Pelikan M400 – no imprints
The third difference. Imprints on cap ring.
Pelikan 400 – no imprints
Pelikan M400 – imprints „PELIKAN – GERMANY”
Pelikans in brown striped/tortoise colours are my favorites pens. I have four Pelikans in this colour : Pelikan 400, Pelikan 500NN, Pelikan 400NN.
