It's nibs, rather than pens, which attract me.

 

Without the nibs specified, I'd pick the No. 32.

 

There are two 32s on my writing desk, an EEF and an OBBB, both of which are excellent writers.

 

The light, understated design appeals to me.

 

The image provided, with the leather-bound volume, is attractive.

A suggestion for future offerings. You can create a poll for votes in thr thread and it is easier to gauge interest. Often times people will vote even if they have no comment to leave.

I'd vote 149 although that example poctured looks no earlier than 1970s which I personally don't consider a vintage MB. Yes, I am persnickety. :)

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

I need to see the nibs. The rest is nothing without the right nib.

Without seeing the nibs, I really couldn't say.

On the aesthetics of the body, the 25 for me, hands down. (Probably without the clip) A beautiful simple design.

 

As others have said, nibs would play a large part in such a decision.

 

Nice pens, thanks for sharing.

The 149.  Ever since picking up my first 149 a few months ago ... I've fallen in love with them.  Love the huge grip sections and nibs.
