My montblanc 22 has an amber dot on the bottom of the piston rather than the traditional white star—is there a reason for this? Could it be fake, rare, etc. Thanks for any help!

This a WAG(wild ass guess!)

Possibly the original white star fell off? I googled the pen and the pictures that showed that end  of the pen appeared to indicate that the star was attached to a piece of material and maybe glued on to the pan. The glue failed at some point. Was it like that when you got the pen?

no fake.


You are sure it is a piston filler?  Normally the amber jewel is used originally on cartridge fillers but not on piston fillers.
