111NT
According to Lutz Fiebig of penboard this model is scarcer than 111T because it was produced during the war time hence production number is very small.

GORGEOUS collection, Rick!



I have only one Toledo, an M700 from the early '90s, imprinted "Pelikan W. Germany." It's a part of my Daily Core and currently has a steel B nib.

I love it when folks complete a set. Such a great feeling!

Thanks, E. I do love these pens and it is a great feeling.

I have been using it (carefully) this week, though I think I'll leave it home when I go hiking later this morning.

Call this destiny or coincidence, but I was 1 hour ago at a pen shop in Versailles; I went there for a completely different pen, but ended up buying a M900 Toledo.
My wallet is crying, but those are tears of joy ! And I come to this forum, and see this thread. *drools*
Thanks for the wonderful family pictures, Rick!

I like them! Thank goodness I already bought one from Rick Propas (an M700) so that need is satiated.

Rick,

It is truly gorgeous collection.

I am very sorry to ask this basic question. According to the reference of Toledo in the Pelikan's Pen Exchange web page, the Toledo was first produced in 1931. "1932 Pelikan Tolede T111 (Toledo)" in your post means that your T111 was produced in 1932. If so, how can we tell the year of production of Toledo?

I would greatly appreciate your reply.

Rick's posting made me happy. I have the three right-most ones (1987 Pelikan M700, 1991 Pelikan M900, 2003 Pelikan M111T) so I am 3/5th there. Of course, as with software projects I am familiar with, that last 2/5th may take the rest of my life to complete -)

Very nice collection indeed.

Hi Rick! my name is susie and i was reading all about your beautiful pelikan collection. congrats BTW. I acquired a green silver pelikan toledo today. its a part of the estate i am working on. I was so excited to find it buried among the rubble. unfortunately, its not complete, which brings us to why i am contacting you. the lid is missing and there is no ink in it. i am new to this so dont laugh if i have this wrong, but it is a piston fill so it is supposed to be empty w/out ink in it right? or wrong? my other very important question is, is what is the value of this brand new condition toledo pen with just the barrel and the original nib? could you please advice on that for me. thanx a million-susie

Just saw these - wonderful! If I might ask a question: I am not able to tell the difference between a toledo M900 and M910. Can any one enlighten me?

M900 has a gold overlay, and gold trims. The M910 has silver overlay and silver (or platinum) trims.
