Is My 149 Real Or Fake?

Recommended Posts

I have a MB 149 I acquired today,but under the clip,instead of 'Germany' or 'Pix', it says

Made in Germany

Metal

Is this a real MB?

Info:

Bought today in Sydney from a Montblanc store

Medium nib

Help!

The photo is hard to see,but if you look carefully,though you can't read the writing,it is clear that is not one of the two normal words.

Hi Eric,

 

I recently had my 146 repaired by Montblanc in Hamburg.

Was an 80s pen, they replaced everything - except for the nib and the knob - by todays parts.

And now it says "made in germany metal" under the clip.

So yours seems to be a modern authentic one.

They say various things under the clip depending on when they were issued.

 

'Made in Germany Metal' is a normal legend.

Thanks for your fast replies to confirm that this is a real MB.

Also,this was the Castlereagh st boutique.

It is a fake. Get rid of it as early as possible. And the best way to do so is sending it my way. I would gladly do the job for you. :)

No offense,but I conducted my own reasearch and it appears to be real. Even if it isn't,it's still a very good fake,as I did a magnet test,took it to the jeweler,and confirmed that the nib is real gold. Thanks for your Help,but your observations are probably wrong.

Yes, definitely wrong. As Ghost Plane says I just attempted humor. Anyway, sorry for having hurt your feelings. :) Enjoy your lovely pen.
