Hello All,
 
Hope you're having a good week.
 
There are rare pens and then there are super rare pens, this one is firmly the latter. We're delighted to be offering this stunning factory demonstrator Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 Fountain Pen. The pen has never been inked and is presented in outstanding condition (a couple of tiny hairlines on the barrel, but that's like being picky about a brush stroke on a Monet - your black 149 will probably have these, you just can’t see them). This pen has a fantastic history, with it being owned from new by the MD of a major pen retailer - it was used to show customers how the 149 was constructed, especially the nib section with its pink bubblegum sealant. 
 
It's difficult to convey how rare these pens are, with virtually all examples that appear being pens that have been cobbled together with incorrect non-Montblanc parts and then they simply have a Montblanc nib fitted to them. To make this example even rarer, all elements are clear, including the piston cone and top of the cap. On the few examples that are around, these elements are usually black resin like the standard pen. We love the fact that you can see all the details that you never normally do, such as the way that the cap rings are constructed and the snowcap logo insert.
 
Because the pen was supplied directly to the original owner, the specification varies in terms of components that would have been standard around that time (it was supplied around 30 years ago). The most wonderful option that they chose was to fit the medium 14C Tri-Tone nib. It's legendary status amongst Montblanc fans means that it seems only fitting that they chose this. The feed is split ebonite and as you can see from the photos it has black piston threads. The clip features Germany only markings.
 
A demonstrator pen isn't for everyone, but there is something outstanding when it comes to a demonstrator 149, especially with this provenance. There is something that simply can't be captured in any photo or description, but if you want a pen that sets you apart from virtually every other collector, fan, enthusiast on the planet then this is the one. We can't decide whether we'd ink it up, but wow would it look beautiful if it was inked with something bright!
 
We could write for hours about this pen, it just sucks you in when you look at it and admire all the details that you never usually get to see. 
 
The important details are as follows...
 
-14C Tri-Tone Medium Nib
 
- Montblanc Piston Filling System 
 
- Germany markings present
 
- Split Ebonite Feed
 
- Exceptionally Rare
 
We're delighted to work with customers and collectors all around the world, so this pen can be couriered to wherever you are on the globe. If you'd like further information, then please contact me directly on roy@izods.ink or simply send me a message on here. The price is GBP 4,500.00.
