Hello out there,
a 100N worth to be shown around, I think:

Made in Germany for the Italian market. Cap top is accordingly imprinted GERMANIA - and as a special detail, the nib shows a different imprint, which is very much like Italian nibs were imprinted at that time.
The pen is a very early version of the 100N, with hard rubber cap and barrel, and grip section as well from hard rubber.
The pen is restored to full working condition, cap bands still very good with only minimal signs of brassing.
Barrel is the early amber color version, with a perfectly kept inkwindow. I fully diasassembled the pen to bring it back to full working order, fit a fresh cork seal. Thats fun, but also driving you mad, as the risk is, the barrel breaks, when disassembling the pen.

Enjoy the pics:
Regard s
Tom Westerich

Tom,

How cool! Clearly not one of the postwar Milano pens but something different. What style is the captop logo?

Dear Rick,

no, this must be one from the time before Pelikan Milano received the Hard Rubber machining tools from Hannover (because they stopped working Hard rubber there). That happened in 1939.

cap top logo is the empty nest already, just two babies - the new logo.

Best regards
Tom

There's no fun without some risk... :)

Thank you for sharing Tom, ciao.

Tom,

I thought that the hard rubber machinery went to Milano after the war. Regardless, from the look of this pen it must be around 1939. I've seen the "Germania" imprint before, and have one, I think, but the nib gold content logo is waaay beyond cool.

Hey Tom

A super find. I especially like the Italian style nib. One the advantages of living in Italy (apart from the good food, weather and scenery!)

I have the accompanying pencil with the Germania imprint (and I also have one with the Milano imprint).

Very nice pencil. So if you find one with the "Wien" imprint, you get to keep it, right?. :lol:

The ban set by my other half is only on keeping lots of duplicates so I think a Wien imprinted pencil would be a keeper ! I do however have two NOS examples of the Germania so one will need to go... ;-)
