I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB and feed. Hand cleaned the cap and barrel. Hand polished the Gold Filled trim and 14C/585 NIB. I have Cleaned, Buffed, Polished and Waxed the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid of fountain pen. This Montblanc 264 has a blue visualated barrel with perfect transparency.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition showing no chips, cracks, or repairs with the cap always secures tightly to the barrel. The cap has the Gold Filled Clip that displays no brassing. The Gold Filled cap banding displays just a hint of brassing by the "O" in Montblanc as shown in the photos. The top of the cap retains the snowcap logo. The piston filler blind cap securely fits and is stamped, "B with an arrow". The cap is stamped with, "MONTBLANC 264 with the Montblanc star logos". The barrel is heat stamped with, "MADE IN GERMANY". There are no personalizations or monograms to either the cap or barrel. This Montblanc 264 size measures 5 1/8" in length capped and 5 7/8" posted.
This Montblanc has a piston filling system. The piston filler has been cleaned and greased to work as it was originally intended to. I have tested the piston filler with water and works flawless and operates smoothly.
The Montblanc NIB is a 14C/585 NIB. The NIB has a broad, semi-flexible point measuring roughly 1.15mm when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample provided in the image ranges from a fine line that measures .50mm on the horizontal strokes to a double broad line of roughly 1.44mm with medium to firm pressure when I measured with digital calipers. The Nib is very responsive and "springy". The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This generation Montblanc Fountain Pen is extremely scarce and are increasingly difficult with this type of NIB which makes this an excellent collector variant to add to one's writing arsenal collection. The Montblanc 264 was only produced for three years from 1957 to 1959. I would grade this Montblanc 264 to be easily in Excellent Condition. Certainly, if you are a Montblanc collector this is one of those types of pens you will want for your collection that is amazing to write with.
