This Montblanc has the plastic feed with horizontal combs, has two section barrel construction and black plastic filler mechanism. The cap clip ring banding is stamped, "Germany". I believe, we can date this pen to circa the early 1990s.
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 which, display absolutely no brassing. 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. I have cleaned, buffed, polished, and waxed the cap and barrel. I also clean the internal components of this pen. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the barrel or cap. 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 an 18C/750 Tri-Color NIB. The 18K Montblanc NIB has a medium point measuring roughly 0.72mm 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 to broad stroke measuring at .72mm and the double broad stroke measures roughly 1.32mm when measured with digital calipers. This NIB writes extremely smooth and such a 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 wonderful example of this iconic Montblanc No. 149 Fountain Pen. It is in impeccable condition and I would grade this fine writing instrument in Excellent to Near Mint Condition. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
