Thanks Opooh, when you say a 'white elephant' do you mean it could be a fake or just that this pen is extremely rare? Do you know anything about the 135? Many thanks

Thanks, couldn't open the link to Christies but interested to note it may be rare. Have you seen the photos? Any thoughts?

That's a 136.

Thanks - I would agree it looks a lot like the 136 in the photo link from Chunya above, but my pen has a different clip design to this, the same design as the 135 image in the Pinterest link I've already posted. Also, I've just looked at the number again through a loop (husband's photography lens) and it is almost certainly 135! There is another number above this, on the barrel, D.R.P. 652405. Nib has 4810 and the MB logo beneath this (logo with the 'M' in the middle).

 

Out of interest, how rare is a 136? Any idea of value? Just need to know so we take the correct care over any restoration etc. Many thanks.

opooh suggested Tom or Max, they should make an appearance soon, but you could even PM them and ask their advice. Both very nice chaps!

Thanks for doing this :-) I'd agree, it looks like a '6' here but through the camera magnifying lens it looks more like '5'. Will try to get a clearer image.

Here's a clearer, closer image my son has just taken.

Also, just compared the last digit in this with a '6' in the other number on the pen and it looks different in style. There is also an 'F' on the same section of the pen that the 135 (or 6!) is on, further around.

I still would not like to put a bet on either ..... The F will signify that the pen originally had a Fine nib ..... and the nib is  probably the original.

I found this on a vintage pen site:

 

136 War Time Meisterstuck
With the vintage 136 War Time fountain pen, collectors will have a writing unit that measures 5 1/8 inches. In addition, it features a rare palladium nib and is recognizable by its black body and gold clip.

Nice, indeed.

I would get that baby restored and use it every day.
