Can you still ship to arrive for Christmas?

 

Thanks!

Thank you, Michael R, for this wonderful post and journey into the past. Look at the listing for K nibs! They are remarkable writers. In many years of MontbIanc addiction, I have seen only a single photo of a 149 with a K nib, although I do own a 252 with a K nib. Your post made my weekend. Thank you. Hope you enjoy yours.

Thanks so much for posting. This is wonderful to look at. I love looking at old catalogues as much as I like looking at old pens. The graphics say so much about the time.

 

My one and only Monte Rosa appears in the catalogue. If only the prices still applied today! DM 7.75 (less than 4 Euros) for the pen.

 

If anyone has MB catalogues from the 1970s they can post, I would be much obliged. I am obsessed about the MB cartridge filler lines from the 1970s (Carrera, Caressa, Noblesse, Turbo et al).

I think there are others in a pinned thread but here's the 1973 one:

Hi soapytwist,

 

Thanks very much for the link to the 1973 catalogue. I had no idea that could be found on the net.

 

Thanks and Regards,

The 744 in solid gold: DM 300. I'll take it, thanks!

@Barry:

Thank you for your kind words!

Yes, when it was (almost) all about nib selection!

I yet have to see a 149 with a Kugel nib. So far I have seen them on other pens including the 146 but not on the 149s.

 

But to be honest, the Kugel nib is not my favorite nib style as I appreciate the accurate and "sharp" cuts of the regular Montblanc nibs of that time.

Cheers

I agree! The sharp angles of the old nibs is truly a thing of beauty. They dont make them like that anymore

very informative.. I notice that there are ebay 744 and 644 that don't have the nib type shown in the catalogue

Old style vs. new.

 

Check my other catalogues on flickr; I‘m sure some list the nib other nib style you‘ve mentioned.

 

Cheers

Nr. 262 mit Vielzweckfeder. Schreibeigenschaften ähnlich denen eine Kugelschreibers, aber mit den Vorteilen einer Montblanc-Goldfeder"

"No. 262 with multi-purpose-nib. Writing properties like that of a ballpoint pen, but with the advantages of a Montblanc gold nib"

 

Does anyone know what that means in effect?

 

Also: The wing nibs have "satin polish", but what difference is there to the classic MB nibs? Or is it all just advertisement-lingo?

 

Thanks for the catalogue, really exciting stuff, wish I had some D-Mark left!

Thank you so much. I was immediatly reminded of current Lamy nib shape in the first frame. I did not realize this was a vintage shape design.

I'll assume a K nib, kugal...ball on top of the nib; stub on the bottom.

Was common enough.

1958 could well still be semi-flex. I've a KM from Geha and Osmia in semi-flex.

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:
