Hi Guys, 

 

Just having a look on eBay, an online retail shop selling the Meisterstuck 149 Red Gold. They have two of these and many other various Montblanc pens, wonder if you could let me know if it is legitimate or not. 

 

Here is the link below:

Kind Regards,

If you're in the market, you will find that 149's (of all stripes) are listed here in the classifieds at reasonable prices.

For what it's worth, the seller erfobay is reputable and I believe many FPN members have purchased from her (I believe her name is Monica) before without issues.  

 

See:

Current Wishlist:

Visconti, Visconti, and...more Visconti! (And some ST Duponts too). (Ok fine, getting on the Omas and Montblanc trains now too. Toot toot.) (And maybe on the Montegrappa one too, but only for the Miyas.)

Actually read that yesterday, haha apologies :)

 

Also, Thanks everyone for the support and I dealt with a sales manager named Gerardo. 

Everything seems to have been sorted out. 

 

Will look into the classifieds as well. 

 

Thanks again for the warm welcome, and glad to be part of the FP Network. 

 

Looking at the duofold next. 

 

Kind Regards,

Hi, i recently thought the same, I 'almost' got scammed via ebay - the fakes are getting better and better :(

 

Ebay alerted me of the fradulent seller and I requested my money back via paypal - the pen was still delivered

 

(This was going to be my first FP as well..!) Pardon the photo's, taken with my iPhone

This fake isn't a piston filler, it has a cartridge converter (which works on a piston principle)

Nathan,

 

That has to be the most comprehensive fakery Meisterstuck I've seen yet, from the pen detail to the packaging and booklet.  What was the seller getting for these, and where was it shipped from?

And are you sure it's a fake? What model was it supposed to be? (I have two C/C MBs).

Fake 145. The converter is the give away, wrong type and marked MONT BLANC.

It's always fun, I wouldn't see these if they weren't posted individually.

 

But I prefer the posts asking if the site offering Carnegie LEs for $5 is legit.

Just received the Mont Blanc, such an amazing pen, the red gold is very subtle not very different from the regular 149

Hi,

I called it a fake (outside eBay alerting me) by the print and quality of the pen box. The booklet was actually 10/10 in comparison to other authentic examples I have. I actually had a laugh at the exterior cream packaging - they certainly went to great lengths!

The pen itself was 9.5/10 - held up to light the (resin?) body even shown red - as soon as you held it, you could tell by the weight it was not genuine. The converter had 'Mont Blanc' & was printed poorly, yet looked a reasonable duplicate from the outside.

I placed a bid @ 189.00 and was unsuccessful, only to receive a second chance offer which I accepted.

I recently sold this example on gumtree, clearly noted as a replica for $50 (sold within 24 hours)

Good to hear it went well, this is a big step in the life of a FP collector.
