Hello guys, I just bought a Montblanc pen (original i hope), used, for 200€. My pen has serial number and germany on top ring. On cap ring it has only “montblanc meisterstuck”: no pix neither n.° 146. I hope some of you guys can help me identify the year of this fountain pen (and if it is original). Thanks and happy new year!
We knew the day would come, Aliexpress is now selling "MB 149" piston filling fountain pens with ink window. The clip has the serial number KY1944219 and "Germany." Overall crudely made when examined under a magnifying glass but true to the size of a real 146-- in fact the caps interchange. (If anyone has a broken 146 cap this would be a cheap replacement.) Two-tone gold and silver colored nib, medium/fine, with pits in the plating that are obvious under magnification. The plastic is NOT red when transilluminated, but I have seen other "MB's" with the correct red glow. The "gold" ring around the piston knob is not well aligned with the pen body and you can feel a step. All in all this should be easy to identify as not genuine in the hand, but difficult to spot in photos.
