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'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.
