    Default Counterfeit

    I am looking at an Agatha Christ montblanc and the price just seems to good to be true. So im wondering if counterfeits of this pen are made? Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes, it is very widely counterfeited, especially on ebay and etsy. The giveaway is if the pen uses a converter or captive converter. The authentic MB Agatha Christie fountain pen uses a Piston. Typical prices run well over $1700USD.

    There is currently one for sale at auction on ebay.com and that's authentic. On the other hand there is at least a week to go and it won't be that price by the end.
