This Montblanc has the split ebonite feed, has single unit barrel construction and black plastic threads. The cap clip ring banding is stamped, "Germany". We can date this pen to circa 1973-1985.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the gorgeous Gold Filled Clip and Cap Banding. The cap banding is stamped with, "MONTBLANC MIESTERSTUCK No 149". The transparency of the ink-view window is "Water Clear". There are no monograms or personalizations on the cap or barrel. This Montblanc 149 Fountain Pen measures 5 3/4" in length capped and 6 5/8" posted.
I have tested the filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The Piston Filling System works as it was intended to do and effortlessly.
The Montblanc NIB is a 14K/585 Bi-Color NIB. The 14K Montblanc NIB likes to write "semi-wet" (not too wet and not to dry but tend to be on the more wet side) and has a medium point measuring roughly 0.77mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a medium to double broad stroke/line. The writing sample provided in the image has the medium stroke measuring at .64mm and the double broad stroke at 1.58mm with medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue-Black Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton cloth that I used to polish/clean the barrel and cap.
This is a wonderful example of this iconic Montblanc No. 149 Fountain Pen. I would grade this writing instrument to grade easily in Excellent Condition. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
