  1. Hello there, Recently, I do a lot of pen maintenance mostly on vintage Montblancs. With this I realize the different colorations of some of the Montblanc stars on these pens which range from snow white over somewhat yellow to banana yellow. Here is a picture of a 344, a 252 and a 342 - all in different shades of yellow... These pens are otherwise in excellent condition; however, the discolorations are a bummer. A micro mesh treatment and an intensive polish have not shown any results. Does anyone of you have a suggestion on how to "revive" the original white of the stars? Best Greetings! 4810

    149 Nib Discoloration

    I am considering purchasing this 149 from the 1980s. Does anyone know how to remove the dark discoloration on the nib. As you can see from the side picture, there is an area that is lighter as compared with the rest of the nib.

    Discolored Omas Paragon Arco?

    Hi all, I just received an Omas Paragon Arco. It's a 2002 model. My question is this: I thought the beautiful glowing wood-like colors were supposed to go all around the pen. On this pen there are two sides that exhibit the glowing, beautiful gold and brown colors, and two sides that are dark brown striped. Did I get a discolored Arco? Or is this normal? It's hard to show the dramatic difference in the colors in the photos, but hopefully you can see what I mean. Now, if I don't put the cap on just perfectly, nothing lines up. I am not happy with the coloration, because I expected it to be consistent all around the pen. I need to know if this is acceptable for Arcos or if I should send the pen back. This photo shows the dark brown striped side close up: This one shows the beautiful golden colors of one side of the pen: Another shot of the brown stripes with a little bit of the gold so you can see how the pen goes from one color to the next. There's no graduation. Thanks for your help. Susan
