Montblanc 144 Authentication Real Or Fake?



jbrown2014

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I am new here and just acquired my first Montblanc. It is a Montblanc 144. I bought this pen on ebay and I was wondering if you guys thought it was real or not. The box shows made in West Germany and the gold sticker on the pen shows M W-Germany. However the clip shows Germany on it and the serial number is two letters followed by six numbers. The nib passes the magnet test. The threads on the barrel are brass, but the converter that came with the pen appears to be the old style push in type. I am attaching pictures for you guys to see. Does anyone know what year this pen may be from? Thanks for your help!

I have seen that feed on other 144s from the 80's. Can you take a closeup of the nib? Is it mono-toned or two-toned?

I don't believe fakes have the nib size stickers on the barrel.

 

so I vote real.

 

btw, what happened to the B in BLANC on the case?

I'm not sure what happened to the B in BLANC. It looks like it's kind of peeled off on that satin type material.

Looks the same as the nib on my 144.

Ink it up and enjoy it.

I have a MB 144 but the converter in a screw on converte I'm my case you might also check underneath the clip there must be a PIX logo there other than that the pen looks legit to me, enjoy it!

There is no pix logo underneath the clip of the pen. The pen appears to be the old style to me before the use of the pix trademark. It is in the old style box that has West Germany on it, but the clip has Germany and the serial number on it.

Hi,

 

It looks like a real 144. The feed is a flat feed they used to use, and the converter is the correct MB push in converter that usually came with those pens. The clip looks fine too. I don't think all clips from that time period had the Pix.

It could also be from the early 90s which might explain why it has a serial number on the clip, but the box (?) says W Germany.
