Nice review, this is one of the pens on my wish list, only recently saw a few in the flesh and was surprised that thye seemed quite small, but didn't stop me wanting one.

Don't apologise about your handwriting it's much better than mine.

The Pelikan 100 series are classics for all time- one of the best vintage pens around if you ask me.

I have a 100N from approximately 1948 and it is one of my favorite writers. Not all what I expected. Mine is a very stiff fine, which I like quite a bit. Do you know what year your pen is?

Mine is the one on top of its brothers and sisters.

I'm not sure what year this pen is, I have not done my homework on it. My guess would be in the mid 40s? Thanks for the kind words.

My 100N (green marble) is basically the keeper of all keepers. It's a OM beauty with more character than the new stock Pelikan nibs, and it really does feel bigger than its measurements, yet still lightweight. It also seems to demand a classic ink: I lean towards a blue-black on the blacker side of blue.
