From the home to the boardroom, everybody recognizes the luxury and quality of the commanding Montblanc 149 fountain pen. This robust, pre-owned luxury pen is a smooth writer that holds a ton of ink. We think it is from 1991. The cap band has a serial number and "W. Germany." Germany reunified in 1990, and Montblanc was known to have used its West German parts until they ran out. The company started using serial numbers in 1991. It also started using two-tone 18k gold nibs in 1991, which this pen has. We find that it writes a smooth fine line. Click the headline for close-ups. Under the heading of "nobody's perfect," we think this pen was dropped star-first on the ground once. One point of the star is heavily damaged, and there is a crack on the star only. The rest of the pen is fine and show mostly only light wear over the rest of the pen. The piston filler is in good working order. 14.9cm capped.
