That is magnificent. And saved to a couple of places against future need.

 

Thanks to you and Jar both..

 

You are very welcome, special thanks to Jar for providing such valuable information, it wouldn't be here without Jar's effort. :)

 

Also thank you for your wonderful website, it is really helpful when I was trying to disassemble the Pelikan MK10. :)

Does anyone know if the Montblanc No 12 comes in a burgundy color, because I cant find one anywhere?

MB 12 comes with burgundy color, I got a 74 in burgundy color, which means the 12/14/72/74 series comes with the burgundy/green/grey color.

I have a 31 with a 585 gold nib. Is this a legitimate variation or is it a 32 with a 31 cap or a 31 with an upgraded nib?

Thank you in advance

Hello,

 

It is quite possible, if you look at #4 (you are currently at #44), you will see a variation 32 with 22 'butterfly' style nib gold nib, and ember ink window.

 

The 31 has 2 versions, one is 32 style steel nib and the other one is 22 'butterfly' style nib.

 

It is quite possible the a cap from a Montblanc 31 (with 22 butterfly style steel nib) goes to a Montblanc 32 body (with 22 butterfly style gold nib)

Hi, am I correct in thinking these were the first non-flexible nibs used by Montblanc?

Thank you for this wonderful post!

I have a question - will the (1) section (2) nib of the 22 fit the 72? I have a 72 with a cracked section and nib and there are some 22s for sale that I am considering for parts.

Thank you!

I guess so, so far, I have not seen a flexible Montblanc 12/14/22/24/32/34, but given it is hooded nib, it is not likely to make a flexible nib out of it. Also, if I remember correctly, Montblanc 149 was in production during this period of time, so a flexible 149 is possibly available during that time.

 

 

Thank you for this wonderful post!

Yes, you can do that, it is interchangable.

Fascinating! Anyone know what a "music writing point" is?

I assume it is a music nib with 3 tines? Wow, I have never seen a vintage MB with a music nib though

A music for the 12/14/22/24/32/34 probably will look like this (http://fountainpenbo...usic-nib-retip/)

Wow, I've never seen a nib with three tines before, don't suppose you have a writing sample?!

Thanks for the info, I hadn't even heard of a three tine nib before.  Never seen this on a vintage Montblanc either but we know it was at least available as a special order on the 344. Fascinating!

Its interesting that the chart doesnt show BB or OBB available for the 22, 34, or 72, when in fact my 22 and 34 both have lovely stubhish BB nibs and my 72 had a wonderful OBB nib. Maybe this catalogue was from a specific dealer and shows their stock only (it looks like a page from the 1960s Kohinoor catalogue).
