Pelikan M400 Brown Tortoiseshell from early 1980s.jpeg


My Pelikan M400 in Brown Tortoiseshell, in its clamshell box.


It has a 14k ‘M’ nib, and is in very nice condition. It has a screw-in nib, not one of the earliest friction-fit nib units, but its nib design shows that it is from the earlier part of the production run of these pens.


This picture shows how very brown its cap and piston-turning knob are. The grip-section is also this colour.
In less-bright light they can seem to be black, but they’re the colour of dark chocolate (nom nom nom!).

Important Correction:

This pen is not from the early 1980s, it is from the early 1990s!


For details, see the explanation in my comment under my photo of its nib.
