  1. Too late, I realized I should have enquired here, first, before posting an ad to sell my like-new Pelikan M150. I would appreciate your help in determining whether to leave my ad as it stands or delete it (if possible) and re-list it at an even lower price? Recently I have returned to FPN after a few years of busyness and am not current with all protocols here. Hopefully I am not overstepping any rules by posing this question. I look forward to your replies.

    M150 And M250, Same Pen?

    My M150 arrived today, what a beauty! Listed as used but looks absolutely pristine. Not being real familiar with good Pelikans, I was curious: except for the color, this seems identical to my M250 - (post-1997?) single band on cap, band on barrel at piston cap, 'crown' style end cap, exact same size, same nib. Both say "Pelikan Germany" on the cap ring. The only difference I can see is that the print on the rings is ever so slightly smaller on the 150. Is the 150 basically a 250 that was only offered in black to serve as the entry-level pen in the line-up?

    M150 Nib On An M200

    I am new to Fountain Pen Network and this is my first time posting anything so if I post this in the wrong spot or do it the wrong way, please feel free to correct me. I recently purchased a Pelikan M200 from my local pen shop. I had wanted one with a medium nib for some time and, as a college student, the decision to spend more than $100 on a pen was not an easy one. They didn't have any with medium nibs in the shop at the time or have any medium replacement nibs for the M200 so they took a medium from an M150 and put it on an M200 and gave me a free bottle of Diamine Presidential Blue (which I am now IN LOVE with) to compensate for the price difference. It writes beautifully and lays down a nice, thick line of ink but I've been wondering about the difference in the size between the nibs of the M150 and M200. Do you think this is causing any change in the writing experience from the way the pen needs to be held or anything like that and, if so, would it be enough of a difference to require buying an actual M200 nib (keep in mind, on a budget). Thanks!
  4. I bought my first Pelikan last week, I've been considering one for a few months and bid on an unknown model on ebay, I knew it was either an M150 or M200 but didn't know what the nib or age were, the seller said it was around 10 years old. I posted pictures from the auction to the what pen are you waiting for thread and sargetalon was good enough to message me with more info, the pen appeared to be an M150 probably from pre 1997. The pen arrived a couple of days ago and on the surface looked good, there were scuffs and micro scratches that you would expect from a pen that's been in daily use for a decade but the pen looked better than I expected, from it's size I'm now sure it is an M150.. I knew the pen would need flushing so filled it with warm water, the piston moved fairly smoothly and it filled well, when I emptied the pen it looked like ink coming out not water. I unscrewed the nib which was a little tight to speed up flushing, and kept filling and emptying, it was becoming clear that the pen had been in daily use but probably never cleaned in 10 years. While waiting as the pen soaked I checked the logo and found it was indeed a pre 2003 model but on closer inspection I noticed it says 'Pelikan W Germany' on the cap band, so I'm thinking now that the pen could be alot older than 10 years and possibly closer to 20 or more as West Germany ceased to exist in 1990, if anyone can clear up the date issue I'd be really grateful. Anyway enough waffle, after 36 hours of soaking the pen was clean, I applied a drop of silicon grease to the piston and was amazed at how smooth it became, I thought it was smooth before but now it's silky smooth. The nib(which is a medium) needed a little tine adjustment to straighten but now is pretty smooth and has a nice spring and gives a little line variation. There's a tiny chip missing from the gold plating but I've read that's not uncommon. Sorry for going on, here's the pic's My first Pelikan in all it's glory: I included this pic as when I received the pen I thought the window was black Logo: M nib with little chip in plating: W Germany on cap band: Again sorry for waffling on, now that my first Pelikan is up and running I'm loving it, the cleaning was a real pain but it's been worth it as the pen will hopefully be good for another 20 years. For £20 I think the pen is fantastic and I'm sure my first Pelikan won't be my last
  5. I have an M150 that I've had for a few years that has always written rather wet. I stopped caring about that for a while after I got a nice Esterbrook, but that pen will be going in for repair soon and I want to get the Pelikan working the way I want. So, would someone please point out some resource for manipulating Pelikan nibs in particular? I think this one needs to have its feed set back a little more.
