Recommended Posts

Hoping for any help in finding out about this.

 

Git it some time ago, and all I know is it's a Monte Rosa,has - I think - Minte a Rosa etched on the cap, no cracks, nib says Monte Rosa, and on the end piece there's a dot( white?) and numbers which may be 0486.

 

When I got it, the nib was a wee bit scratchy, and I tried to smooth a little, but left iy when I didn't seem to be making any progress, and didn't want to do damadpge. I'm pretty certain that a nib eister could have iy up and rock and rollin' in no time at all :)

 

Anyway.....could anyone let me know what model it is? Have enclosed pictures as best ?I cab( eyes bad just now.)

 

Thanks

Alex

 

PS I'm hoping to sell it....if there's anyone here who would like to give it a new home, that would be great....eBay is a hassle and my concentration isn't great. I'd much rather just a straightforward private sale. And please excuse me if its cheeky saying that here. I have no idea how much it's worth, nor ant memory of what ?I paid for it( again with the health stuff.....stroke affected memory)post-110936-0-10310300-1466498503_thumb.jpegpost-110936-0-53266600-1466498537_thumb.jpegpost-110936-0-45417900-1466498663_thumb.jpegpost-110936-0-69809000-1466498692_thumb.jpegpost-110936-0-81190900-1466498720_thumb.jpegpost-110936-0-20085500-1466498759_thumb.jpegpost-110936-0-53430700-1466498815_thumb.jpeg

I have no idea how much it's worth....

 

 

Put it this way. New in box examples are not uncommon, and go for about US$100 in the states.

It came in two versions, 042 (gold plate nib), and 042g (14k nib).

Not every "Monte Rosa" was made by or for Montblanc. There also was an independent Swiss company with the name "Monte Rosa" which produced fountain pens too. But this is pen is a real Montblanc school pen.

 

I don't think that you should expect more than £ 35 to £ 40 for it.

      @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.
