    Unusual Pelikan 100N

    I recently bought this 100N with an unusually ornate clip. The diamond-shaped end of the clip seems to point to a "Danzig" model. On the top of the cap is written "Pelikan Günter Wagner". I've seen "Danzig" models before but never with such a clip. I hope the Pelikan experts can tell me more about this interesting pen. Happy New Year!
  2. Every fountain pen enthusiast have a happy day, when his/her getting the door ring or call that the package with fountain pen is delivered I had such DAY earlier this week, when my new vintage Pelikan 100N with short cap top was delivered.. Short prehistory. I collecting vintage pelikans more then 3 years and was sure, that for 100N (in general) series pens short cap top options are available only for 101N Tortoise brown model and cousin from Portugal -"Emege", but couple weeks ago on one web store I noticed Pelikan 100N with black sleeve, hard rubber piston knob, teardrop clip, but with short cap/long cap. Seller is well reputable, so I skip thoughts that this could be frankepen. I started to search information on the web, but didn't found any confirmation about existence specific Pelikan. Then started to flip book "Pelikan Schreibgerate" from J.Dittmer and M.Lehmann and on the page 36 found short paragraph: " On March 25, 1937 a new fountain pen was announced for the market outside Germany: The Pelikan fountain pen no. 100N.... Model 100N was also produced for certain countries with a shortened cap-top and in different colors." That was enough for me. Short negotiation with dealer and.. (start reading from the begining) English is not my native language, so enough words- I make some comparison photos with measurements for this 100N and mine100N from the same year, but with "standard" cap. Comparison of two 100 N series Pelikans with measurements: Uncapped (barrels are identical in size): Angle view: Best wishes from Lithuania, Giedrius
  3. Was looking into this auction earlier today, namely for the BBB-nib which was the star of that show. I was willing to bid up to around $150-200 or so just for the nib as I already have two BBB-wide nibs for the 100N (one script and one dot script), sadly both without that elusive BBB marking... But yeah, wow, what can I say, last second bids show that someone really really really wanted that nib. I didn't even feel bad losing on that one (instead I actually laughed out loud a bit) even though this is only about the second time I have seen one for sale during the last 10 years. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Vintage-late-40s-PELIKAN-100N-Black-fountain-pen-Excellent-BBB-nib-FOR-PARTS/192698715278

    Pelikan 100N With Factory Bbb Nib

    So this happened....such an amazing nib. I have never seen a factory BBB that also had the nib size imprinted on the piston turning knob. Super flex too..... What do you guys think~
  5. Was watching this film footage taken in Berlin a few months after WWII ended and think I saw a Pelikan 100N briefly at the 3:02 mark... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5i9k7s9X_A
  6. As luck would have it I finally hit a show stopping snag with my ever increasing flock of later gen Pelikan 100N's. I recently received one which looked pretty pristine from the outside (cap & barrel were A-OK) but had a problematic nib (tip missing, other tine creased & bent). Knowing the nib issue I paid a lot less than market value but when I received the pen I found that the internals were pretty much shot. As in, the piston mechanism base (which holds the shaft and spindle) had a big chunk missing on the barrel end and it seems that someone had mistaken the end of piston shaft (where the piston seal is attached) for a chew toy... it wasn't pretty. Fortunately I already had one base that I recovered from an otherwise junked 100... but no piston shaft. Hence the need to find a replacement piston shaft, the whole piston shaft and nothing but the piston shaft. Anyone in the know for a source? I already sent an email to David Nishimura @ Vintagepens about this but thought of asking also here. Thank you most humbly for your attention, Mana

    My First Pelikan - Have Some Questions

    Hello, Today I've received my first Pelikan, a 100N 'EXPORT' marked, with Pelikan D.R.P. around the cap top, which I got for an absurdly low price on the local flea market. The pen is in fantastic condition for such an old pen, and the nib is a sweet OF or OM with quite a bit of flex. The only thing that bothers me is that the piston seal is not completely flush to the interior of the barrel, and while the pen does fill almost completely, I'm afraid that some liquid can get past the seal into the back of the pen. I've tried to disassemble the piston assembly (I've read about them and I know that I must turn clockwise), but it doesn't budge...I didn't force it. I'm guessing that the pen is made out of resin, but I may be wrong (can't quite tell the difference between celluloid and acrylic). Here are a couple of pictures (sorry for the bad quality): http://i.imgur.com/8DV453g.jpg http://i.imgur.com/EAzdOgU.jpg http://i.imgur.com/1ajah2t.jpg Is there any place in Europe where I could get a new seal for the piston? And also, what can I do in order to loosen the piston assembly, so I can remove it? Thank you.

    100N Inner Cap

    Hi folks, I have just purchased a 100N. There appears to be no inner cap. Could somebody be good enough to confirm that it should have one, and what they look like? Many thanks, Ralf

    Pelikan 100N 'n' Nib?

    Hi, just got this baby today and was wondering if anyone could tell me something about it? Long story short, bought a used Pelikan 100N for cheap and the nib turned out to be something interesting. The nib (and the pen) have obviously seen a lot of use (against a ruler looking at the wear on the tines near the tip) but other than that and the slightly misaligned tines it looks purdy great in person. Goes from 0.2 to 1.8mm (easily). Anyway, couldn't find any info online (as of yet). What do you think? Can't wait till I have the nerve to send the 101N I got from an auction earlier this year for a full restoration, going to have this one put into it. Thanks!
