I did change it after your post as you were clearly correct. I wanted to make sure there was no downstream confusion should others stumble upon the post in the future. Loved your pics by the way. Im always jealous of your photography.

Thank you for clarification.
 
...and since you mention my photography, I have a couple of pictures more.  :D
 
I really like the IBIS in all its variants, and I think that it is a very interesting Sub-Brand of Pelikan, I will ad some pictures of pens from my collection to this thread. Hopefully, the OP doesn't find it intrusive...
 
This comparison shows cleary the different sizes of the IBIS' made before WWII and the IBIS 130 which was produced after 1949.

The prewar IBIS was made of Hardrubber except the barrel, wich was made of clear but black dyed celluloid:

This one is NOT a demonstrator, it just shows well how unsteady the black dye was. In this case it disappeared almost completely.
 
And this IBIS is one of the extremely rare examples which were made of marbeled celluloid:

There were three colors available: Gray, Red and Green ones are known. Mine is maybe just discolored gray...
 
After WWII  the production startet in 1949 again

The pen was made of black celluloid (cap) and this acryl like plastic which could processed by injection molding and that Pelikan used to manufacture the barrels of the later 100 and 100N too. Only black examples of IBIS are known.
 
In 1952, the Pelikan IBIS was replaced by the famous Pelikan 140 until the production stopped in 1954 definitively.

Last but not least, I don't have to mention the excellent site of Dominic Rothemel wich contains lots of facts and pictures:

The Ibis, especially the post-war Ibis is one of my favorites. It has a very simple, clean appearance. The green ink window is a nice feature. I love the hourglass clip. Eventually I'd like to get another for my collection as well.

I cannot recall exactly where I had come across the info.  Just one of those things picked up along the way and stored for later.  I'll be doing a post on the Ibis in the coming months and usually devote a fair bit of research to these things so I'll try to track down a definitive answer.  Lots of post ideas and lots of research necessary for them which is why I've been a bit slower to churn out content lately.

 

That is great, I can't wait for that! :)

Can't get enough info on this stuff.  Thanks for your hard work

Thanks for reading.  The rabbit hole goes quite deep on a lot of these topics.  Currently looking at post on the Gimborn 150, the M420/425/430, and a timeline of Pelikan history.  Once I have those in the can, I'll probably turn my attention to the Ibis and the Rappen, at least that's my plan.

marbled celluloid:.............so rare, I never say any Pelikan of marbled celluloid: that I can remember on German Ebay. ....much less in three colors.

 

Always more to learn, and in there is no test, it is fun.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

The cheapest lessons are from those who learned expensive lessons. Ignorance is best for learning expensive lessons.
