This Montblanc is made from Coral Red Hard Rubber. The color displays extremely well. The top of the cap has the white snow top mountain cap. I believe this model to be made in Denmark, not Germany.
This fountain barrel is in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the 2-Ring Gold Filled Cap Banding and Clip which displays no brassing or wear. The cap is stamped with, "MONTBLANC MASTERPIECE 4810 with the Mountain logo". There is a tight hairline in the lip of the cap that measures 3.13mm in length. The barrel is stamped with, "SIMPLO ORIGINAL MONTBLANC". The blind cap is stamped with "4" and "FF". I have cleaned, buffed, polished, and waxed the cap and barrel to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the hard rubber. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the barrel or cap. This Montblanc Masterpiece #4 Fountain Pen measures 4 3/4" in length capped and 5 1/2" posted.
This Montblanc Masterpiece has a Button Filler filling unit. I have tested the filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The Button Filling System works as it was intended to.
The Montblanc NIB on this fountain Pen is a #4 - 14 KARAT Semi-Flexible NIB. The 14 KARAT Montblanc NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .65mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a buttery smooth stroke that performs in a range from a fine to double broad stroke/line. The writing sample provided in the image has the fine stroke measuring at .53mm and the double broad stroke measures roughly 1.30mm when measured with digital calipers. This NIB writes extremely smooth and a real pleasure to write with. 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 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 very scarce example of the iconic Montblanc Masterpiece Fountain Pen in the scarce Coral Red Hard Rubber. This Montblanc Masterpiece is in fine to very fine condition - it would be excellent if we didn't have that hairline in the cap lip. This one is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
