Hello everyone!

New to this forum. I like Montblanc, have 2 vintage fountain pens. Recently I bought a ballpoint pen  / won an auction on eBay. The seller had written that he bought it by a well-known person, who is a known seller of MB (I will not write the name here, unless necessary). I have no intentention to return the pen or accuse the seller of any kind of false info, I am just curious if you could help me identify if the ballpen is authentic or a good fake. What worries me, is the weight of the pen, looks lighty in hand... And the material compared to the old fountain-pens that I have is slightly diffrent..

 

So here it goes.. it is supposed to be a Montblanc Meisterstuck LeGrand ballpoint pen. When you take the refill out, the spring does not fall out. 

 

Here are the pictures.. The Pix under the clip is not engraved IN, it rather sticks OUT of the level of the clip..

Sorry I do not have a better camera.

Just to add to the conversation since there's been mixed opinions... It appears to me to be counterfeit based on the pictures provided. I have yet to ever see a genuine MB pen have the "Pix" engraving in two different places. It is also rare to see genuine pens where the only thing under the clip is the "Pix" engraving. There are usually other things accompanying this under the clip. And as mentioned, the "Pix" on this particular clip is not genuine at all. It is not the correct font, slant, or size. The cap top (emblem) is also far from genuine. Sorry to hear this didn't turn out as hoped for.


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