Recommended Posts

Hello ,guys !

I am new to the forum ,just purchase my first montblanc for myself ,I have bought a 145 for my friend as a gift for doing the surgery on my mom ! So I am digging the montblanc,

I have bought the Greta(mint condition) but is missing the box that it came though .I still have to wait for the pen to arrive. I am looking for the box in new or pristine or mint condition.Of course I will pay for it ,reasonable prices of course .I really wanted a nice pen .Since I bought the pen for my friend I fell in love with the pen.

Hopefully some of you guys have a box that is just laying around !!

Thank you very much for your time !!!

Hello and welcome to FPN. :W2FPN:

 

There are many counterfeit Montblanc Greta Garbo pens around that are usually sold without boxes. The 145 is also a commonly counterfeited pen. I hope you will be fortunate enough to have bought authentic ones.

 

If you bought them from a Montblanc boutique you should be safe enough, but not having a box for a Greta Garbo sounds bad.

 

The very first identifier to look for is that the authentic Greta Garbo always comes with a heart shaped hole in the nib and that it matches the images on the Montblanc web-site in every small detail.

By the way, buying or selling directly within the Montblanc forum isn't allowed. Fountain Pen Network does have a classifieds section, but you need to be here a month and have 25 posts to be able to post a classified advertisement.

 

The biggest source of MB boxes I know of is eBay.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
