Hello All!

I am thinking about parting with my steel 144. If I do, I would love to find a broad nibbed, metal piston threaded 149. I would also be keen to find a MB watch in similar price range. If you have these or another MB of similar price range that you would like to sell or trade, please contact me at my gmail.com address: abbottcory

Thank You!

PS - I might even be interested in a very special BP or RB.

Tri-tone or two-tone nib? 14k or 18k?

I think it's really a question of what I can find. Metal piston threads are important. Beyond that, I just want a smooth, fairly firm B nib with good flow. Tri-tone would be preferable, but it's really not that big an issue.

I've heard that the B and BB nibs are harder to find. I don't have one for sale. But, I wanted to join the discussion to track your search. :)

Someday I'd like to get a BB I think. I'd like tri-tone nib with brass threads also. Are they hard to find?

Not really. The current production 149 has a tri tone nib and metal filler threads. BB come less often on the used market since may be not many people can use them for daily mundane writing tasks, so it may be bought less often when new. However I have been able to find OBB, B, BB 149s on ebay. Most of the times the sellers will not know the nib width since Mb does not mark them on the nib or pen, you will have to observe the nib photo to gauge what the nib width might be. good luck hunting your ideal 149.

I saw this comment and thought I would throw out there that I have an Imperial Dragon Pencil for sale. I'm open to offers before it goes on ebay. No box or papers but in great condition and rare.
