New To Me 100 N Short Cap Top (Long Cap)

Every fountain pen enthusiast have a happy day, when his/her getting the door ring or call that the package with fountain pen is delivered :D I had such DAY earlier this week, when my new vintage Pelikan 100N with short cap top was delivered..

Short prehistory. I collecting vintage pelikans more then 3 years and was sure, that for 100N (in general) series pens short cap top options are available only for 101N Tortoise brown model and cousin from Portugal -"Emege", but couple weeks ago on one web store I noticed Pelikan 100N with black sleeve, hard rubber piston knob, teardrop clip, but with short cap/long cap. Seller is well reputable, so I skip thoughts that this could be frankepen.

I started to search information on the web, but didn't found any confirmation about existence specific Pelikan. Then started to flip book "Pelikan Schreibgerate" from J.Dittmer and M.Lehmann and on the page 36 found short paragraph:

" On March 25, 1937 a new fountain pen was announced for the market outside Germany: The Pelikan fountain pen no. 100N.... Model 100N was also produced for certain countries with a shortened cap-top and in different colors."

That was enough for me. Short negotiation with dealer and.. (start reading from the begining) :)

English is not my native language, so enough words- I make some comparison photos with measurements for this 100N and mine100N from the same year, but with "standard" cap.

 

Comparison of two 100 N series Pelikans with measurements:

Uncapped (barrels are identical in size):

Best wishes from Lithuania,

That is a very nice find!

 

I also was not aware that the 100N short cap top version existed in black.

 

What is the imprint on the cap dome (Pelikan DRP?)?

Hello:

Congatulations for your new Pelikan and thank you for this clear comparative.

Only a question. The sleeve of one of these looks a bit shorter than other, Is it true or only a persperctive effect?

Thanks.

Regards.

Thank you all !

@joss: I had to mention this. Yes, cap dome imprinted "Pelikan D.R.P. Pelikan D.R.P." and new logo on top.

 

@Croma, I took wrong angle and on photos seems so, but in reality barrels, sleeves and ink window are identical.
