Hi. I am new to collecting Mont Blanc pens. Can anyone please tell me if this is real? I found it very unusual that it came in clear plastic case! ??? ANY info on this pen would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

Loretta

No, it's a fake, unfortunately.

I have not seen this type of packaging and the font 'Mont Blanc' seems odd.

Yes it's a counterfeit and even the pen is a bad fake.

I knowingly bougt a fake in the 90s to see what it was like. It was very poor. This pen looks similar to it.

All MB pens are finished in very high quality and also looks very elegant. Recently I was in Kuala Lumpur and stepped into a night market where It's popular for its counterfeit goods and happened to see MB ballpoints and FPs....i was appalled at its poor construction and finishing.

The logo's the first dead giveaway, then the weird packaging, and most certainly the folded-back clip. 


10 years on PFN! I feel old, but not as old as my pens.

Sadly that's quite a common fake, and is nothing like any authentic Mb pen

Where is this place? Interesting to look around and improve my observation skill.

Sorry Loretta you have a fake. There are plenty of places online to get authentic used MBs if you are interested.

I don't know how old this packaging is but does look possibly close to the genuine version. There aren't many, but some are sold in this see-through type cases on airlines or places where the pen cannot be removed and handled by the potential customer. This pen in particular is a counterfeit though unfortunately :(

I keep thinking about selling some of my pens but all that happens is I keep acquiring more!
