    Fake Or Real Montblanc?

    Hello I have recently purchased a fountain pen at an estate sale. There was a box of pens for sale and as I was sifting through them when a familiar symbol caught my eye. It was of course Montblanc six sided white star. I quickly asked the seller how much he was selling the pens for, and he said three dollars. Real or not I was willing to pay three bucks for a fountain pen. I've been into fountian pens for about two years now, and when it came to purchasing expensive pens I generally purchased Visconti Pens, hence that is where a good chunk of my knowledge lies when it comes to high end pens. I can tell a fake Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 from a real one, but when the model of pen moves away from there so called flagship pens my knowledge unfortunately diminishes. After some research I've come to believe this is a real Montblanc and the seller was not aware what he had, although several aspects of the pen are throwing up some major red flags. The center band is not ornate as I have seen on many Montblanc pens, it's a German iridium point nib, and the sections material feels a little on the cheap side. I've have uploaded some pictures of the pen below, any insight on the pen being real or not would be much appreciated. As well as if it is a genuine Montblanc what model it is. Thank you
  2. I'm considering a Boheme and came across the following oddity on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Montblanc-Boheme-White-Marbled-Lacquer-Fountain-Pen-LTD-Signed-Numbered-/271676101815?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f412854b7 I originally thought it was just a mislabelled Fitzgerald WE mistakenly put up by a misinformed eBay seller but as I dug into the description I realized that, no - they really think this a legit Boheme! (Check out the nib) What's even more amazing is that people are bidding on this monstrosity...PT Barnum's quote about a sucker born every minute comes to mind.
