Hi everyone, thanks for this wonderful place to discuss Montblanc pens. Even though I just registered this account a few days ago, I have learned a lot from this site for quite a long time. I recently bought a writer's edition, Edger Allan Poe, on therealreal.com, (this is not an ad, because I really don't trust much on this web). I can basically determine that it is authentic, but I really want a second opinion. The sticker seems low-quality and the weight is less than what I expected, because I used to believe the out-wear is made of some stone-like material. Thank you very much! The followings are pictures.

You can also contact Montblanc service center in Ft. Worth.  They can review the pen and certify it for authenticity for a price (I think around $35-50?).

My barrel crumbled twice on me, I have the nib and cap and rest of it in a drawer.


Having used mine for a few years, it looks like the real deal to me in your picture.

nothing to suggest its a fake.

Therefore I'd daresay its original.
