Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I have bought this pen from power seller "pen-seller" on eBay aka Michael Rheinlander for 1350 euros. I would like to confirm if it is real or fake.

 

I am a new hand to Mont Blanc pens and I would love to learn more please help me thanks :) the serial code looks a bit printed to the top to me and also the Germany letter on clip is not in capitals.

 

There is the "metal and prix" behind the clip and flashing a flashlight into the retractable nib I can see ruby red.

 

Retractable nib, 18k plated

 

Please help me see if it's real or fake thank you!

I don't recall this pen in the boheme chart pinned at thr tip of this forum. I am no expert in Boheme pens though. I don't know if there was ever one called sharkskin. I think the wrapped ones were all cow leather.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

looks too real to be a fake. ;)

No, honestly, I haven't seen or heard of a Boheme fp with the slide mechanic to be faked, did one of you?

I'm going for authentic. The retractable mechanism is a bit complicated and I don't think there are many fakes about that have one exactly like the authentic Montblanc version.

 

This was a colour that Montblanc produced, so that's another + for it, and the feed looks exactly like the one in my authentic Boheme. :)

I would go to Montblanc and let the pen maintained, If they do that you'll be sure it's authentic. If not you can get your money back,

But that would cost him money that he might not need or want to spend as the pen is authentic and writing perfectly.

Hi, I did a lot of investigation on the Boheme's. I have one without a number and it's also a real one. Its been cleaned now at Montblanc. What I found out in my research that the nib engravings on the real ones are more clear, deeper and sharper. Als I haven't seen a fake one with the twist mechanisms only the bigger ones.

For me you have a real one, its obvious.

 

Enjoy writing with 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.
