cchukan posted a topic in MontblancHello, First post on this forum - to be honest, didn't know there was such a huge community for fountain pens... Requesting some help determining model and value for a fountain pen I found while cleaning out my dad's room. On leave, visited my parents house and they asked me to go thru some boxes and throw away useless/old stuff. There I found couple of new Montblanc ball pens and one fountain pen... The ball pens I was able to find online as they were a common model (same one my dad gave me when I graduated from college) but couldn't find the value and exact model of the fountain pen online... Can you all tell me what exact model this is and the value? I think it is the Meisterstuck 144 Bordeaux&gold if that's even the right terminology. I only say that because I found the same (?) pen on ebay. Please see the links - it's being sold for over $1000. http://www.ebay.com/itm/MONTBLANC-144DV-BORDEAUX-GOLD-FOUNTAIN-PEN-FINE-POINT-NEW-IN-BOX-144DV-/130858055584 and another one I found... http://www.ebay.com/itm/MONTBLANC-144DV-BORDEAUX-GOLD-FOUNTAIN-PEN-FINE-POINT-IN-BOX-144DV-/140922383496 Here are pictures that I took earlier today... It's brand new... it says 18K on the nib (didn't even know what a nib was until today), under the 18K it says 750 (or 760 can't really see it's small), above the 18K it says 4810, on the cap it has the number 925, around the band it says Montblanc Meisterstuck, around the clip(?) it has 2 letter followed by 6 digits and then GERMANY and then METAL 3. It also has the proof of authenticity as you can see in the pictures...it was purchased in 1998 at an airport duty free store (so I'm 99% sure that it's not fake-hopefully) Unfortunately, it is old so there is a stain as you can see on some portion of the cap (last picture). I'm guessing because it's silver, color changes if not used or touched (?). Should I keep it? does value increase over time? if selling, what's the best method? Any of you interested? Thanks for the help in advance!
