I just love the Spanish-made MBs from the 1950s! Here is a rather rare colour - Grey "Chevron" thanks to our very own FredRydr! https://www.vintagem...44-grey-chevron

 

I am so happy to say that more and more MB collectors from around the world have been generously contributing pictures of their pens to help the website become a comprehensive repository of rare vintage MB reviews. 

 

Enjoy!

Hello!

 
This week I have something truly special to share - a 124 E with rose chasing. This is as rare as it gets my friends! https://www.vintagem...4e-rose-chasing
 
Also, here is a No. 2 silver overlay safety from about 100 years ago, but with a very rare characteristic - it has no branding or marking on it. https://www.vintagem...ver-safety-no-2
 
Enjoy!

I have just returned from a wonderful family vacation in Spain! While in Barcelona, I had the opportunity to visit one of my favourite sellers and buy two wonderful pens: No. 0 lever filler + 244 in grey (Tiger Eye style). 
 
I also received a No. 4 compressor filler as an exchange for one of my pens (through a swap I did with an FPN member in the US). 
 
I will review these pens on our website over the coming weeks. 
 
More interestingly, I met with Jordi Lopez in person in Barcelona! As you may recall, he is one of the generous contributors of rare pens on our website. I will be writing about my meeting with him and sharing pics of some really cool pens he showed me. It was a fascinating morning!
 
But, in the meantime, here are two super beautiful rare pens from the collection of Ariel Z - the No. 4 & No. 6 lever fillers in mottled red --> https://www.vintagem...ler-mottled-red
 
Stay tuned for more!

It is with great pleasure that I share with you some notes from my meeting with Jordi Lopez (Joudenali) - one of the most prolific collectors of rare Montblanc vintage pens!

 
You are about to see some really cool and super rare pens - a few are undocumented and may even be the only example around :)
 
Enjoy!

Wow! Gosh!  And thank you Siamackz, 

 

I don't need much prompting to visit your excellent website and this time was wonderfully rewarding.  I read your excellent article over and over again. 

 

Your meeting and interview of Jordi Lopez was a real treat and I strongly encourage anyone remotely interested in vintage MB pens pop over and feast their eyes.   And what fortune, that Jordi started the meeting by letting you pick up the near mythical MB 124E   :yikes:  :puddle:   

 

Thank you for continuing to provide us with such excellent material.

Some modern Montblancs are nice but that old ones are beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
