    Smile La Famiglia - Pelikan 140

    My La Famiglia 140
    This is how I named my little collection of Pelikans 140 and their cousins and other derived ancestors:
    On the first pictures from below the classic - Pelikan 140 black-green striped; above the Pelikans 140 of different colors, much rarer.
    If someone is jealous of my collection he has only to consult the site of Martin Lehmann (http://www.pelikan-guide.com/140.html) it is there that one can note that my collection is very mediocre: it is terribly missing the gray, light tortoise and brown (if it existed) not to mention the hallucinating yellow blue tips (sic!) ...
    Martin counts in the Famiglia also the Pelikan 120, so that on other photos one can see the 120 in "ordinary" version (smaller) of the years 1955-65, and in Merz & Krell version of the 70s, different by its larger clip, its beveled cap ring and its one-strand larger size).
    I count as the youngest member of the Familia the fairly recent Pelikan 150 (for some 151) dating from the post-1997 years which by its colors seems to be a "descendant" close or a cousin not far away. (first pen from below on fig. 2 and 3).
    Last picture represents both 120 together with their "ascendants" of an IBIS (paternal grandfather) and a Rappen (maternal grand-uncle)






    Above the first pen from above is a Pelikan 300, very rare, produced for a very short time (in 1956 only) and many for export. (size of a 400 tips of a 120/140).


    At the bottom a Rappen, below an IBIS (from 1945 or +), than Pelikan 120 (50s) above Pelikan 120 Merz&Krell (70s)

    Enjoy ! or ĦDisfrutan! as our Spanish-speaking friends would say ;-)!

    This is great! These, along with the 400 series, are my favorite Pelikans! Thanks for showing them to us.

    And I am impressed by the 300. I have been looking for one for a while but have only seen one. Sadly, I was outbid.
