Could anyone tell me why this pair (84 and 87) has a different symbol?

I have never found out why.

Fascinating. I have seen triangle-shaped alternative "snowpeaks" on Montblancs intended for the Middle Eastern market. It seems these serve a similar purpose. 

 

If these are in your possession, take good care of them! They're very hard to find.

The "triangle" substitution for the standard MB star for distribution in some Middle Eastern countries years ago is very well known. I've not seen variants like these in any reference book. So, if they're legitimate, they must be quite rare and potentially confusing for whatever market supposedly targeted. I'm interested in expert judgement on these pens and for more background information on this particular set.

Thanks. The pens have everything of a MB. The nib, the interior etc. I bought them a long time ago.
