I found this pen in my desk drawer while I was looking for my (long neglected) MB 163R. I do not remember buying it specifically. It is a really nice pen, nice heft to it, hard plastic body, posts well. The color did not come through well in the pictures. It is a lighter shade of green with a marbled appearance. I currently have a Montverde roller-ball refill in it. I know I have had it at least 10 years.

 

There are no markings on it anywhere I can see. Maybe it is just a literally no-name pen?

Anything on the cartridge that provides a clue? Interesting looking pen? Did monteverde ever make a pen without marking it?

I have this rollerball which looks very similar to the one in the OP photos.

 It's a no name pen made for (I think) a popular UK stationers shop chain.

Those refills often look similar but are different in length of the details.

 

This one is made by Monteverde but they make refills for many brands, like Schmidt do in Europe.

Perhaps you can see on their website which type this is.

But chances are this is a no-name rollerball made to somewhat resemble pens like Montblanc and Sailor.

However, with a proper refill they can provide a lot of joy in writing.

The cartridge is not original. I had to take the pen to Artlite (in Atlanta) and get a refill. Now that I know which Monteverde refills fit it I can get them anywhere.

 

It writes really nice, so it is definitely a keeper and use it regularly.

 

Thanks.
