Four in total in the past 10 days!
- Boheme Green jewel, platinum trim, gift to my son. Tried it, love it. Amazing size, M NIB, writes like a champ. Fluid, wet.
- Schiller FP, M NIB. NOS, bought at an authorized dealer.
- Faulkner FP, M NIB. NOS, bought at an authorized dealer.
These two are the subject of another thread I started "Best Montblanc deal ever" as I paid US$ 1,030.00 for BOTH pens new at the dealer. Pics posted on that thread as well. :rolleyes:
- Mechanical Pencil "UNICEF", NOS.

Now I have to stop until next month. :eureka:

Very nice.

I didn't know there was 149 in steel trim.

What year is that?

My 146P arrived today.

This pen has been reserved for the Mont Blanc Midnight Blue ink. It's a brand new pen, very clean ink windows, almost a shame to ink it. Almost. :embarrassed_smile:

Just bought a Bordeaux 147 today. This pen doesn't get too much recognition on here, but I am really enjoying it so far. The travel case included is a big plus as well!

Until tonight I hadn't bought a MB on ebay since May last year. I've just bought a Schiller. I'm quite intrigued about this pen. I saw it in a cabinet in NYC in 2003 but didn't touch it and have not seen it since. Not quite sure what to expect.

Two more to go (excluding the yet to be released 2012 edition) in order to complete my collection: Voltaire + Hemingway. The goal is to get these pens before 23rd June 2013 which would be 10 years after I bought my first WE pen.

My Collection:
Montblanc Writers Edition: Hemingway, Christie, Wilde, Voltaire, Dumas, Dostoevsky, Poe, Proust, Schiller, Dickens, Fitzgerald (set), Verne, Kafka, Cervantes, Woolf, Faulkner, Shaw, Mann, Twain, Collodi, Swift, Balzac & Defoe
Montblanc Einstein (3,000) FP
Montblanc Heritage 1912 Resin FP
Montblanc Starwalker Resin: FP/BP/MP. Montblanc Traveller FP.

Congratulations BrandonA. It must feel really good to be a step closer to reaching that fantastic goal of yours set for June 2013. Looking forward to reading of your undoubted success and seeing the pictures of them all lined up.

I was lucky enough to go to Hamburg and see all the current ones displayed in Montblanc's Head Office and they REALLY look good together. However, an individual's collection really would be something to drool over :thumbup: Can't wait.

Pavoni.

Are you collected boxed pens or user grades? FPH had a Voltaire in their back room recently.

Nothing special: only two rollerball refills, "Nightfire red" (wow!).
Actually, it's a normal red refill, just more expensive. But it sounds good and I like the box. :ltcapd:

All are of good quality with all boxes and paperwork except for a couple where I only have the book book and paperwork. I knew about the lack of boxes when I bought the Dumas and Wilde, I bought them though as the price was too good to resist.

The problem with FPN is that it is not in the EU so I'd have to pay import duty. I tend to buy from European eBay sellers, my preference is from the UK but good UK pens are hard to find.
