Hi

I was wondering if anyone could tell me when MB started making the Classique Rollerball Model 163 and if someone could point me in the direction of a good site for history on this model.

Thanks much!

Keith

Come on Keith, a rollerball is only a piece of basic commodity and not a collectible item. I wonder if anybody cares about a "history" or production date of such an item.

That's the wonderful thing about a site like ours. Everyone is free to be interested in what they please and respectful of others' choices...

penparadise was a little harsh but this is a fountain pen site (not rollerball) and it is only a basic item which most people will have to complement their fountain pen. I doubt many will care for the history of this pen. And the thread heading was a little misleading. I thought we would have a quiz and not be asked for info.

Yes, that was my understanding as well. Sorry if I offended somebody, it wasn't my intension. But a rollerball stays to be a comlementary item.

I have The Historical Roller Ball...the very first one, from Parker way back in the 80's.
It's been empty since...too.
In Germany it took ages before the roller ball came in, and I forgot it.

Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also.
