146 Date Identification



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

I purchased another 146 for what I would describe as an absolute bargain. I have taken a look at some dating charts and information, but I cannot definitively pinpoint the production span of this particular pen.

  • Plastic piston threads
  • Germany on clip
  • No "Pix" anywhere
  • Slitted ink window
  • Monotone 14K nib
  • Plastic feed

I believe it to be from the early 90's (1991-1992). Then again, some parts may have been swapped or replaced.

The bolded and underlined...seems a mishmash of parts/eras.

I see. It is quite the unusual combination.

 

I found this 146 on eBay like my other 146's, though this one was more heavily used. The pen had many "laugh lines," but some resin polish and a little elbow grease had it looking many years younger. I paid around $150, which is fairly inexpensive considering the nib was in pristine condition and the piston operated smoother than my M800's. I am sure that you will find a better bargain as there are a good amount of 146's circulating the Bay. Best of luck.
