I was said, it was bought in 1998, it was filled few times only, so it is like new, and has no use marks.
Buy it now is around 330$ but it seems it will be sold cheaper.

It looks genuine to me, judging from the close up of the nib.

It looks OK to me although the Chinese can make a nib as authentic looking as that one. As long as it's a piston filler you should be OK

Nib looks good to me. Piston fillers are harder to replicate so make sure its a piston filler and should be fine. Good luck, hope u win! 146 is always a good midway pen to write with (I have fat hands so its small for me).

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

The pen and box are genuine. How does it write? 330 is too much IMO. YMMV.

$330 is a little high in 1998.
