Montblanc Classique Clip Engraving

Recommended Posts

Hi there everybody. I really hate to create a whole new topic just for this question but I am on an expedited quest to get a Montblanc pencil ASAP as school is starting in less than one week. I found a great deal on an old Bordeaux model but I noticed a faint engraving on the bottom of the clip that appears to say "frontier" maybe...? I thought I've seen this before so I'm wondering if it is a different brand's clip or some sort of personalized clip engraving someone had done...? The pencil is listed as "new in box."

 

Thank you so very much for any help!!

I keep thinking about selling some of my pens but all that happens is I keep acquiring more!

When I used to give Mont Blanc pens and pencils as mementos we would have the person's initials engraved on the clip. Perhaps this was ordered that way and never picked up.

If it bothers you, you could call MB and ask them about changing the clip.

Having the clip engraved does not bother me if it is an authentic pencil. What bothers me is not knowing whether that is a post-purchase engraving or the sign of a counterfeit clip. I didn't think Montblanc did engravings anywhere on the clip and "frontier" sounds like a brand possibly.

Corporate clients would often have their logo engraved on the barrel for corporate gifts. One can still find vintage MBs with corporate logos, AEG is one example I have seen several times. I have not seen this on a clip before but it is possible.

That or try to get people to start calling you by your new nickname: Frontier

Montblanc does engravings on clips on request. I bought my Tribute new, from a reputable online store, and requested my initials to be engraved. They sent it to Montblanc for that.

Well it looks like someone else got the steal on the pencil, assuming it was authentic. I just couldn't pull the trigger since I have a faint memory of seeing that same word "frontier" in that same exact font somewhere else. I also never heard back from the seller when I messaged them. Well at least I hope this helps others down the road and thank you all for your responses. I think I'll be getting the other pencil with the only engravings being "Germany" and a serial number :)

      @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.
