At last I found some time to start a new topic on FPN, that's the problem with a time consuming job. Just a couple of days ago, our member James ( thank you for the excellent idea of the Review Index ) made a suggestion to use the Iphone. Well, a bit less quality but much quicker to have the job done than a Nikon.
Since I am obsessed by the number 9 nib and Montblanc seems to keep this one reserved for the 149 ( yes there are the Hemingway and the Dumas, but that's all folks ) one has to go vintage to find some other 9ers.
The only 2 other models with this nib are the 139 and the 129. In the beginning I didn't even know there was a 129. During the search of a decent 139, one of the welknown restorers said he had a 129 for sale. That decision was quickly made.
So here the 3 are together Montblancs trinity: 129-139-149.
All have the 9 nib and silver rings. The 129 is a pushknobfiller, both the two others have the telescopic pistonfiller.The inkfeed is the skislope one on all 3. All are in regular use, as you can see on the 139 inkwindow.
