Hello pen experts.

I have this fountain pen that I need your expert knowledge to help me identify with the year, model and if possible, the value.

 

The pen's body has the engraving,

"Caran D'Ache Gold Plated G" - Not sure what G means.

 

The nib says 18C - 750 B - Not sure what 750 or B mean.

 

The nib also has a number engraved inside above the screw 255816 - Not sure what this number is.

Welcome home.  Pull up a stump and set a spell.

 

It is a Madison.

 

750 is 18K .750% gold.

 

The "B" is that it is a broad nib.

 

Nice pen.

Welcome, Hossam. What a great slim line design Madison. And with the cisele finish! I think it looks better than the cisele model in the more traditionally shaped Geneve.

Thank you for the prompt response and help. I really appreciate it.

Would you possibly know what the real value of this pen would be? 

I am trying to know if I got a bargain or not. I tried to check the prices of sold listing on eBay but could only find 2 pens sold and both are 14k rather than 18k on the nib.

 

Thanks again :)

The 14k vs 18K nib will likely not make a price difference but prices really are pretty close to impossible to establish beyond you deciding if you like the pen more than the money you paid for it.

Thank you so much. That pretty much sums it up.

I think it's a keeper.

 

Thanks again.

Answered in 2 hours. This place is awesome. When I did a Google image search with the photo, it returned: "Best Guess: pen"  ;)
