    Default Help me identify my Montblanc

    Hi..

    I recently came into these three pens, two of which are Montblanc's. I have no idea how long my grandfather had these for or when he got them. So weird that I've never seen them in his study before. Can someone help me to identify them. I know he travelled a lot in Asia, so maybe they're fake, however that doesn't sound like him, the Rolex I also received is real.

    The Montblanc pens look like Meisterstücks. The FP looks like an older 146 (Le Grand) with a Classic BP.

    Do you know how the FP fills? It should be a piston filler and the end cone should turn to fill or empty the pen. However, if it's not been used for a long time it might need a service as the piston mechanism could be stuck so please don't force anything. A soak in lukewarm water should do it good for a start.

    I apologize, I really don't know anything about pens...I'm not sure why he thought I would want these and I didn't know if I should take them to a place to get serviced...if it is worth it for older versions of these pens

    The end cone DOES turn. I noticed that yesterday. It turns a few times and then seems to stop, and then it turns the other way and closes.

    I should have said "Thank you", I'm really sorry for that, I haven't finished my morning coffee. LOL

    Thank you for the info, I watched a video regarding the 146 le grand and looked at my pen again. I don't see a serial number on "the clip". and apparently mine doesn't have the "Germany" on the right or left side of the clip, but rather right in the middle.

    All you need to do to say thank you is to click on the Thanks button on the response, but it's no problem. I hope you can get your pen writing again.
