hi,

I was offered this pen for 110$ dollars. from the pics...I could tell

the pen has loose rings and nib with plating loss. it is vintage.

 

as the ink window is not visible...I concluded it to be 142... but somehow the cap top seems a bit off.(seems shorter and fatter)

 

please help me identify it.

 

anyways here are the pics.

There should be an engraving on the blindcap ( along with the nib size ) on the vintage MB's ( I only have experience with the 342, mind you, so I could be wrong )
Could be that it has a mismatched cap
Speaking of the nib : is it me or does it seem quite butchered?

EDIT : if those pictures were sent to you : have the seller check for possible engravings on the blindcap.

the nib does look butchered perhaps the tip got bent and the previous owner tried to bend it back into place only to discover that it snapped clean off. ?

 

anyways it looks like a 142?

So we left it at that. He showed us the maneuver after a sort. B*****d stole my kill.'

Thank you all.

 

I am passing on the pen.

 

I am still curious about the cap top though. it looks shorter that any 142 I have seen. even the cap top seems a bit hacked off. or maybe it belongs to another pen.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
