Hi everyone !

 

I just bought this Montblanc fountain pen. It was described as a silver plated classic... But I can't find any information about it on the internet. Can someone help me ? Is it a 221, a classic ? Is it a rare pen ? In that condition with the box and the papers what was the good price to pay ? 

 

I really need your help because I've never seen a pen like this before.

Pen in first post has gold nib.

 

the pen pops up often in this forum with someone or the other asking about it. I would not call the pen rare.

Looks like you may have got a BB nib? Very nice.

 

Not really my style of pen - but I have to admit that I do like the look of it. Stylish! How does it write?

 

Congrats!

It is not the exact same model because of the gold nib... But what is the name of the pen ? Is it a model 2229 with a gold nib or something else ?

Yes I really like the pen and it writes very well ! It was described as a OB nib but It is not "Official"... Could be OBB too !

You have an early model Silver Plated ' Classic" model number 2229. The nibs on the last of the classic series had only the word montblanc whereas the earlier ones had only 585. The pen shown on ebay could even be the same vintage as yours with the nib having been replaced at a later date.
