Hey Community In 2003 my Dad purchased a pencil case from a junk market for 5€. In it there were 4 pencils which were selled with the case. Years later in 2010 he took a closer look into the case and found this: http://hammerweb.selfhost.eu/L129_5.JPG He took an even closer look and found an embossed L 129 at one of the pens. He is not very famliar with computers and the internet, but he found out that these are Mont Blanc pens and the one with the L 129 seemed to be quite old. So he asked me if can make a research on it. And I did. I wrote to Mont Blanc Germany and Walter Kleinhorst who did auctions with old pens. Mont Blanc gave me some information about the history of this pen, and Walter mentioned that my Dad could achieve a selling price of 800-1000€ in that condition. After a little hype about this pen the situation flattened and we almost forgot about the it. That was all in 2010. A TV show in german television "Bares für Rares" reminded me of this pen and I began to google again. And I was more than surprised that some auctions achieved 5000-8000$, that's the reason why I registered to this forum to ask you for your professional advice. The pen is not in a perfect condition but it is also not bad. The metal is not very shiny. But take a look for yourselves: http://hammerweb.selfhost.eu/L129_1.JPGhttp://hammerweb.selfhost.eu/L129_2.JPGhttp://hammerweb.selfhost.eu/L129_3.JPGhttp://hammerweb.selfhost.eu/L129_4.JPG The last two pictures show the 3 other pens from that case. Pls excuse that bad quality. My Dad took those pictures in 2010 with his iPhone. I asked him to make some better pics. I hope he will do it tomorrow. My questions to you are: Would you do a restauration? Whats the best way to sell this pen? I'm looking forward for your professional advice. And please be indulgent for my english, I'm not a native speaker. GreetingsOli
