This Montblanc has the proper ebonite rounded feed, 14K Monotone Nib, has single-unit barrel construction, Blue Gray Clear Ink-Window, and black plastic filler mechanism. The cap clip ring banding is stamped, "Germany". We can date this Montblanc 146 between 1973 to 1980.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the gorgeous Gold Filled Clip and Cap Banding which display absolutely no brassing. The cap banding is stamped with, "MONTBLANC MEISTERSTUCK No 146". The transparency of the ink-view window is "Water Clear". I have cleaned, buffed, and polished the cap and barrel. I also cleaned the internal components of this pen and greased the piston filler to work smoothly. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the barrel or cap. This Montblanc 149 Fountain Pen measures 5 5/8" in length capped and 6 3/8" posted.
I have greased and tested the piston filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The Piston Filling System works as it was intended and effortlessly.
The Montblanc NIB is a 14K/585 Monotone Semi-Flexible NIB. The 14K Montblanc NIB has a broad point measuring roughly 0.71mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a smooth stroke that performs with a medium to double broad stroke/line. The writing sample provided in the image has a medium stroke measuring at .77mm and the double broad stroke measures roughly 1.37mm 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 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 the iconic Montblanc No. 146 Fountain Pen from the 1970s. These vintage Montblanc Fountain Pens are becoming increasingly more collectible and certainly harder to find. I would grade this fine writing instrument in Very Fine to Excellent Condition. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
