Hi there,

 

I obtained this MB FP recently. I don't know every much about it.

Could some one please help me find out more about it?

I was looking at the recent articles on identifying fake MB, but couldn't find anything on this model.

 

I have attached some photos of the pen.

 

Many thanks :)

It´s a MB 144 known also as the Classique.

It is original for sure!

 

Made during the 80´s and 90´s I believe.

Best regards

It's a 144 Classic but it's not completely original as Montblanc made it, as the original would have a bordeaux section, barrel and cap.

 

Montblanc never issued their bordeaux pens with black sections. So if the section is black, then it's a replacement from a black pen

Hello Chrissy, this is not correct, the first 144 in bordeaux have been delivered with a black grip section. Later, after the second view ( from the marketing ) to this pen, there was the decision to make it also in bordeaux. It took more or less 18 month for the decision.

 

kind regards

Thank you for clarifying that fact too.

 

I once asked someone who was selling one on ebay, about the fact that it had a black section, and that information was what I was told. Maybe I shouldn't have just believed it.

 

Maybe that seller had swapped the section over and that's why he gave me that information..

IIRC the black section was only on the 144s too. The burgundy 146s were all burgundy from the getgo.

I'm no expert, but will confirm that my 144, purchased in the early 1980s, has a black section.

I never knew they did that.

I think the black section really gives it an elegant look.

I bought my burgundy 144 in the early nineties. It is all burgundy, including the section.

 

Your pen appears to have a broad nib. It would have also come with a converter.

Yes it has a converter.

There is a bit of rust on one of the rings. Wondering whether to get it replaced..?

Commonly on the 144, the ring on the end of the grip gets corroded as it's dipped in ink, and maybe not cleaned.

 

If you asked them, Montblanc would replace it for you as part of their level 1 service. They would make the whole pen look almost as good as new too within that price.

Bordeaux, not burgundy. The darker burgundy is found on far fewer Montblanc model pens. (I realize this is like whipping a dead horse.) dhorse.gif

I originally wrote bordeaux in my post, but switched to burgundy because that is the term jar used and he knows everything.

 

As for whipping dead horses, I believe that is illegal in some jurisdictions, now.

I just pulled three montblancs from storage-two fps and one rollarball. The bordeaux looks just like the OP's and I bought it from the Military Base Exchange while stationed in Germany in the late 80s early 90s. :)

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
