For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Beautifully Restored Circa 1950s Pelikan 400NN Tortoise/Brown Striated Celluloid Fountain Pen. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, put back together, and now is in wonderful writing condition.

I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB and feed. Hand cleaned the section, cap, and barrel. Hand polished the Gold Filled trim and 14K/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 Pelikan 400NN has some fabulous color and the design looks fantastic.

This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition showing no chips, cracks, or repairs with the cap always secure tightly to the barrel. The cap has the Gold Filled Clip that displays minor wear at the top of the clip. The Gold Filled Cap Banding displays no brassing and reads, "PELIKAN 400 GERMANY". The top of the cap displays the Pelikan logo. The transparent tortoise/brown visualated barrel has water clear transparency - a person can easily see through the barrel. This Pelikan 400NN size measures 5 1/4" in length capped and 5 7/8" posted.

This Pelikan has a piston filling system. The piston filler has been disassembled, cleaned, and greased to work as it was originally intended to. The piston filler works flawless and operates smoothly.

This Pelikan NIB has a 585/14K Oblique Broad NIB. The Pelikan NIB tip/point has a broad point measuring roughly 1.13mm when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample provided in the image ranges from an extra fine stroke that measures .40mm to a double broad stroke of roughly 1.40mm with normal to medium pressure when I measured with digital calipers. The nib on this PELIKAN is very responsive. 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.

These Pelikan's fountain pens from this era have a gorgeous design with such a fabulous, responsive nib. I would easily grade this Pelikan in Excellent condition. This is ready to write with or add to your writing arsenal collection.
