That is a valuable and rare pen, including original box and paperwork: that is a great addition to your flock Dominic!

Congratulations with this find.

Thanks joss.

 

The box came alone with another convolute - not with a pen - but I like it really much.

That is from when Pelikan used MB nibs. Notice the little heart shaped breather hole.

Great find. :notworthy1: :thumbup: :puddle:


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.

Hallo!

 

Great pens, You've got a very nice treasure. :-)

 

How do the nibs write compared to Pelikan 140s? What type of points are they?

 

Best wishes and thank you

Jens

The nib size isn't stamped on the nib nor the mechanism. I think the one has M-nib size, the other nib is actually a little bit bent.

The M nib writes as good as later Pelikan 100.

It's hard to compare with the model 140 nibs, because in my experience there is a wide spread those nibs are writing. I have a really wonderful nib in a 140 and also nibs I don't like.

But I don't use the 1929 pens for writing.

 

For daily writing I use a later Pelikan 100 with OBB nib (from around 1934). :)

Hi,

 

I see, thank you. My experiences with 140s were similar - from a unpleasent M to wonderful OB...

 

Anyway those Pelikan 100 are fascinating pens... and the bent nib should be repairable, from what i just saw on the german forum.

 

Beste Grüße

Jens

I only have two 140's (OB&OF) both are great semi-flex nibs.

It is sad news to find out there are clunkers in the 140 nibs.

 

Have you made sure the tines are aligned?
