My favourite skeleton is the 75th anniversary. It is the first skeleton produced by MB ever. Also, it's nib and the piston mechanism is extremely elegant. It comes with a presentation box. The top of the box is a huge magnifying glass so as to see all the details of this magnificent pen. It is a museum pen. The next favourite one is Magical Black widow.

I'd vote for the Brandenburger Tor as my 3 sons were all born in Berlin, but as its not there Spidy gets it.
And how can this be, because he is the Kwisatz Haderach.

Definitely the 75th Anniversary! The other doesn't do it for me, as I like symmetry, and probably the bling-phile in me :-)

It has to be the 75th Anniversary. The nib work is so regal and intricate. Black Widow is a close second.

Charlie Chaplin, doubtlessly. I actually don't fancy skeletons, but the CC is cool.

John Harrison for sure. All the rest are terrible looking or too overbearing.
