    A Different 149 Or A Frankenpen?

    Hi all, I just picked up a 149 from (you've guessed it) eBay, It has a lot to answer for. Based on it's parts it is from around 1990-1991, but I haven't seen anything quite like it. This is exciting and worrying at the same time. Opinions please: Nib: 18K duotone (Left Oblique Medium) Threads: Brass Cap band: W. Germany Serial: EB100379 Feed: Ebonite I was particularly interested to know if the serial number had any significance. I know they came in around this time. I don't know if it's something of an anomaly, or if it is made up of odd parts. There is some damage to the threads, but I got a reasonable price and the nib is smooth (once I had worked out it was a left oblique!). I'm just wondering how it fits in with the production history. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3792/9293358824_ab3dce7531_z.jpgIMAGE_30B1380C-1018-408A-A6EE-408CDE7DC696.JPG by Bigeddie100, on Flickr http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5549/9293356758_235a554ddf_z.jpgIMAGE_74145632-E36D-47A1-BD3E-AFC0C5E8FDD2.JPG by Bigeddie100, on Flickr http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3673/9290578377_afd05faca2_z.jpgIMAGE_1886832A-C1E3-47A8-884B-0A3AF7BA898B.JPG by Bigeddie100, on Flickr http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7288/9293351536_a4450f2e43_z.jpgIMAGE_B0C01E75-1C58-4D2A-90DE-29D2BB2F1893.JPG by Bigeddie100, on Flickr http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2807/9290571883_d7dc37bd2e_z.jpgIMAGE_CB479AB7-48F5-4A47-88E5-5C17A56E1871.JPG by Bigeddie100, on Flickr http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7440/9290568795_a1aaaf6623_z.jpgIMAGE_2F21D3B9-8F0A-4285-8556-E9CA0D837307.JPG by Bigeddie100, on Flickr
  2. Hi everyone, In my never-ending (and expensive) quest for vintage MB pens, I noticed a 60's era 149 w/an 18C nib that was just listed on eBay here and ends just before 6 PM (EDT) today; the pen has an 18C (not K) nib and looks like it's in pretty good condition. Note that the seller only ships to US, so this might appeal only to those already in the states. DISCLAIMER 1: I'm just posting this in case some FPN'ers in the US might not have noticed this and the auction end is very soon. If it violates the FPN rules, the mods have the right to remove this topic. DISCLAIMER 2: I'm associated with neither this auction's seller or eBay more generally in any way, shape or form outside of furthering my hobby of spending far too much time and money chasing far too many pens.

    Mb 149: Real Or Fake?

    I bought if from ebay. What worries me is that there's no "14K" or "18K" on the nib, although it has a Au750 mark. Has anybody have seen any 149 without "18k" mark? I really want to know if it's authentic or not. Thanks a lot!! Here are some photos. Thanks!!!!!!
