Hi there everybody. I really hate to create a whole new topic just for this question but I am on an expedited quest to get a Montblanc pencil ASAP as school is starting in less than one week. I found a great deal on an old Bordeaux model but I noticed a faint engraving on the bottom of the clip that appears to say "frontier" maybe...? I thought I've seen this before so I'm wondering if it is a different brand's clip or some sort of personalized clip engraving someone had done...? The pencil is listed as "new in box."

 

Thank you so very much for any help!!

When I used to give Mont Blanc pens and pencils as mementos we would have the person's initials engraved on the clip. Perhaps this was ordered that way and never picked up.

If it bothers you, you could call MB and ask them about changing the clip.

Having the clip engraved does not bother me if it is an authentic pencil. What bothers me is not knowing whether that is a post-purchase engraving or the sign of a counterfeit clip. I didn't think Montblanc did engravings anywhere on the clip and "frontier" sounds like a brand possibly.

Corporate clients would often have their logo engraved on the barrel for corporate gifts. One can still find vintage MBs with corporate logos, AEG is one example I have seen several times. I have not seen this on a clip before but it is possible.

Montblanc does engravings on clips on request. I bought my Tribute new, from a reputable online store, and requested my initials to be engraved. They sent it to Montblanc for that.

I believe that Montblanc will replace a broken clip as part of their 1st level service

Well it looks like someone else got the steal on the pencil, assuming it was authentic. I just couldn't pull the trigger since I have a faint memory of seeing that same word "frontier" in that same exact font somewhere else. I also never heard back from the seller when I messaged them. Well at least I hope this helps others down the road and thank you all for your responses. I think I'll be getting the other pencil with the only engravings being "Germany" and a serial number :)
