M150 And M250, Same Pen?

My M150 arrived today, what a beauty! Listed as used but looks absolutely pristine.

 

Not being real familiar with good Pelikans, I was curious: except for the color, this seems identical to my M250 - (post-1997?) single band on cap, band on barrel at piston cap, 'crown' style end cap, exact same size, same nib. Both say "Pelikan Germany" on the cap ring. The only difference I can see is that the print on the rings is ever so slightly smaller on the 150.

 

Is the 150 basically a 250 that was only offered in black to serve as the entry-level pen in the line-up?

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

No, that is incorrect. The M150 is very distinct from the M250. The trim looks the same on both pens so size and nib are the big difference between the two.

 

Speaking of post-1997 models only;

 

M150

-4.72 inches in length, 0.43 inch diameter, and weighs 0.39 ounces

-Gold plated stainless steel nib

 

M250

-4.92 inches in length, 0.46 inch diameter, and weighs 0.49 ounces

-14C-585 monotone gold nib

 

It sounds like your new pen may actually be an M250 if it is otherwise identical to your previous pen (assuming that is truly an M250). Either way, congrats on the new addition to your flock.

Wow, is my face red! All this time what I thought it was a 250, it turns out is actually a 150; went back and checked my purchase history on ebay - "rare red and black M150". D'oh! Thanks for your responses.

It took me a lot longer than many to get a 150...live an a antique store...in I had a few 400's from the start so never chased the 200's. Then after getting a 200 it seemed like why not get that 150 too.

 

I also got a old Pelikan similar shoe ink well. Now filled with ESSR.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

The Black and Black-Burgundy M150s are nice pens. I'm glad that you were able to make a positive ID. Enjoy them.

      @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.
