Hi everyone,

 

I bought a new pen recently but I can't say what model it is. I was thinking about the cc 221 but the number is not engraved on the cap, maybe the classic but i have no information about it. Or the generation. Please help me 

 

Thanks a lot

Hi,

 

It's not the Generation since the Generation has a different cap band. The pen seems to be one of the older Classics. The later classics had a grip section similar to the one on the Generation.

I found this page via Google; scroll down to the Gallery and you'll see a 221, which looks very close to your Classic. Based on the info there, I'd say your pen is probably from late 70's-early/mid 80's(?). Of course, I could be wrong (and have been...often).

 

HTH!

Yes ! you're right, according to this page the classic must have been produced after 1979 but before the generation.

 

thanks a lot for your help I appreciate !

The transition was 24 ---> 221 ---> early Classic  ---> late Classic ---> Generations with lots of spinoffs like some Monte Rosas and the Carrera and Carressas.

I have a 221 whose papers called it a 221P.  Any idea what the P stands for? Sorry to hijack the thread.

"P" stands for "Patronen", which means cartridges in German.
