Hello everyone!

I just bought Montblanc Meisterstuck Platinum Ballpoint Pen online. And I received it today. 

However, as always, I started to question about the authenticity of my newly arrived pen.

In my view, it looks genuine, but I would like to use some pen experts' helps to analyze the authenticity of the pen.

I attached the photos below. 

 

Doubtful Things

1. I think the distance between letters on the middle ring is too wide.

2. Serial Number is not right next to the clip nor has a format of "Two Letters followed by five numbers."

3. "Made in Germany METAL" on the bottom side of the pen clip.

Are you able to disassemble it to see the twist mechanism?  

 

The 'made in Germany & Metal' stamps are included on recently manufactured pens, so your twist mech should be black plastic as per another recent topic in here :)

Seems as if you didn't buy it from a genuinely reliable source in the first place otherwise you would be in no doubt!


They came as a boon, and a blessing to men,
The Pickwick, the Owl and the Waverley pen

I disassembled it and it was black plastic. It seems quite genuine to me. Thanks a lot!
