    Montblanc 144 genuinity

    Hi everyone, so I ended up purchasing the Montblanc 144 edition on ebay. The pen looks very genuine, writes smoothly (I get a similar feeling to Montblanc 220 when I write with it) and is surprisingly lightweight. I tried putting a magnet near the nib to find out if it reacts but it did not do anything (as golden nibs should). I also used a direct light and the body is slightly translucent (it glows red). But there’s no PIX sign under the clip. And I am still not very experienced to state whether the pen is a fake or not. I’m posting some of the pictures and would be very happy if you helped me. Please note that the pen is very small (only 13 cm) and it is very hard to focus on the details. Also, the pen does not have any serial number, only word „Germany“ engraved on the top ring (I read that MBs from ’80s did not have any serial numbers). Thank you!

    Montblanc Converters broken

    I’ve been using all week at work my Burgundy Classique (144R) with 18K nib. I have been using the piston converter to fill with ink. The older threaded converters that say Montblanc ink only. I notice that when I filled the converter (attached to nib) from the bottle that I got a bunch of bubbles, which was odd, but it filled up enough so into my pocket it went. Fast forward to today Friday, I needed a little more ink and when I opened the pen there was ink down the converter and in the barrel. After cleaning up the mess I checked the converter and found that it was not pulling a vacuum. With a magnifying glass I saw a crack on the threads. Luckily I have 4 new MB converters, 3 of the older ones with the “MB ink only” and a new one from MB that now no longer has the ink words on the side. I inked up the new old one with a syringe this time and when I wiped of the threads to make sure there is no ink it soaked the paper towel. So I dump the ink and as I was cleaning the converter it breaks (see pic). I then fill the 3rd and last of the old type converters and screw into pen. I could not see any cracks under magnification so we will see if it holds up. Luckily I still have a brand new (no words) converter in reserve. Seeng if anyone else has had this issue. Also, this may help warn someone as well. I really thought it was leaking from the section some how and by passing the converter. I was actually starting to send the pen into MB before I checked the converter.

    1950S 144 Nib Size Question

    I recently picked up a 144, i think from the 50s. It's marked on the blind cap with "F-". I assume F is for Fine; but what is up with the "-" ...?
