    Default early '50s Montblanc 144, Waterman's 12S w/ german silver clip, GvFC Intuition ebony

    Hi All,

    Three nice pens today. (Edit 6/16: GvFC is no longer for sale) Really wish I didn't have to pass them on to new owners but I would like to get back sailing this summer and it's either or! 5% of proceeds to International Rescue Committee. Prices include shipping within the U.S. International shipping at additional cost.

    1. Early '50s Montblanc 144. The lines on the early ones are a little more stylish than the later ones. Responsive and smooth semi-flex factory (stubbish) B nib with slope feed, no personalization, attractively ambered *long* ink window with little stripe color loss. No major trim wear, light wear to body and cap. Will need a new piston seal but otherwise mechanically sound (piston turns). now $250 (final final price) SOLD.

    2. Waterman's 12S safety with german silver clip. Nice user grade+ condition--imprint still mostly visible on both cap and barrel, HR pattern intact. Clip is in very nice shape and a bit less common. Seals replaced and general restoration done by Brad Torelli and mechanism working well but may need additional inner cap work if you want to carry it around (the seal is good enough for desk use but you may find some ink on the threads if you carry it in your pocket).** Nice juicy EF semi-flex nib, very responsive and capable of decent variation but on the harder side in terms of pressure applied. now $100 (final final price) SOLD

    *the strange "i" in "Intuition" is entirely the fault of my bad hand, not the pen!


    Send me a p.m if you have questions/interest.

    Thanks!
