  1. Hello, I wanted to buy this Meisterstück Le Petit Prince & Fox Classique Ballpoint Pen for a while. It's my first ever Mont Blanc pen. I am new to the high end pen world and have limited budget... I found it on Amazon sold by RD Brands, came shipped from Israel and was about 150$ below MSRP. I decided to buy it there... After some readings, I now doubt I have a fake / replica product... I have the box that looks authentic, a serial number starting with "MBL...", Made in Germany / METAL inscription, I also weighted it and appears spot on. I emailed the vendor, they say it's authen

    Serial Number Engraving And Font

    I am used to seeing a more digital looking fond with serifs and more angular font. Is this good? EDIT- I forgot to mention previously that the owner did have this 149 serviced by Montblanc and has that paperwork.
  3. Hi all, Ive been using fountain pens for a while, but fairly new to Montblanc pens. Im thinking about purchasing a consigned pen from what seems like a reputable seller. Has anyone seen this particular pen before, or know if there are any dead giveaways on its authenticity, and what might be a fair price. It seems to be a 144 Doué from what I can tell, but any help would be me much appreciated. Thanks! V

    Is This Legit? Can Find It Anywhere

    Hello everyone, thanks for the help. I recently won an Ebay auction for a burgundy Montblanc No. 12 and wanted to know if this model even comes in burgundy.
  5. I have the option to get this from a seller that doesn't seem able to take proper photos Does this look like an authentic 146 nib?

    Yep, I Did It--Ebay

    You ever done something and almost instantly thought, damn that was dumb? How about doing that twice within hours? Yeah, me too. Most recently on eBay. Went there just to look and came away with less money and owning...something. It'd be great if i knew what I bought. I've come here for years and watched members display understanding of all ,manner of writing instruments that borders on obsession. OK, more than obsession. And it would've been just wonderful if I'd thought to post all this before buying anything. But i didn't, very unfortunately. Hopefully someone can clue me in on wha
  7. Hi I have a Franz Kafka ballpoint, given as a gift. I have read much about authenticity and fakes so wanted to ask for some expert opinion. I have looked all over the web, made comparisons, studied detailed imagery etc. I thought the learned people here could advise. I attach some close up pics. Thanks
  8. Hi, I would like to buy a second hand Montegrappa fountain pen (about 500 Euros). I've contacting the seller asking to send me more pictures with his fountain pen and to provide me more information about the fountain pen he sells. He said that the fountain pen is a present and he has not a certificate for the fountain pen. Please help me to identify the fountain pen. I am looking for information about price and if the fountain pen is authentic. Thank you in advance.
  9. Hi everyone, just joined the forum, this is my first post. I have recently bought a MontBlanc fountain pen at a reputable antiques shop here in Switzerland. The seller told me it was around 20y old. I have a few questions regarding this model and would welcome your thoughts as to its authenticity. I have attached a few pictures. Here are my observations 1) The pen shows "Germany" and serial number "[DELETED]" on the top band of the cap (not "West Germany" so the pen is not older than 1991) 2) Engraved "Meisterstuck - MontBlanc" on the bottom band of the cap. No model number eg 146 betwee
  10. Does your Siena pen pouch also come with this "washing label" inside, or is this a recent addition from Montblanc?
  11. Hi, I bought a Mint Meisterstuck Rollerball pen on ebay. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=171707401540&alt=web The seller's communication was pretty good and the condition of this pen was good either. I have tested the direct light transparency test of the resin material and the result was yes. However, by looking thoroughly this pen, I found something uncertain that require you Experts guy's judgement. ※ Because I'm not allowed to post pictures on this forum, I need to use the links for the images. My apologies. 1. Engraving under Clip. I know that some
  12. It's nothing to do with me. I'm not the buyer nor the seller but please give me your authenticity impressions of this pen I know for sure that's not an authentic converter, and I know how I would vote, but I would like to see what you all think.
  13. Hi, I realise this forum is for fountain pens. But can't find details on a ballpoint and thought someone here may know about it- or point me to somewhere where I can read more. I'm giving a S.T. Dupont Olympio Ballpoint as a gift, as I can't afford a new one I've opted for a second hand one. I believed that S.T. Dupont wasn't the sort of brand that attracted counterfeiters, however after doing some research I've become concerned. Are fake ballpoints common? Is there anyway to detect one? Should the leaf logo be etched on to the lacquer as in the case of the fountain pen? A few ads
  14. There is a great discussion going on at Sales Of Fountain Pens X Mechanical Watches. The question concerns the relative growth rates of fountain pen collecting v mechanical watch collecting. Over fifty interesting responses so far with insights into specific rewards and emotional satisfactions of each obsession. The discussion raises a question in my mind that probably isn't germane to the active discussion, and that may be inappropriate to this particular venue. If not appropriate, I hope the editor will sinply not put up this post as I don't want to be a troll. Here goes. I am a
