    This is most probably the barrel of a Pelikan 120 combined with the cap and nib of a Pelikan 140.

    +1, that's my thought too. I'm afraid you've been duped seller.

    …references of rather low validity.

    This is your opinion.

    Also Catawiki auctions are thoroughly checked, selected, and validated is accurate. This process ensures the quality and authenticity of items offered for auction.

    W. Rüttinger's site is quite old and has not been maintained for a long time. In contrast to Dominic Rothemel, who created his page together with the archivist J. Dittmer from Pelikan.

    The book “Pelikan Schreibgeräte” by J. Dittmer and M. Lehman, one of the most recognized references, is clear on this point: no green and black Pelikan 140.

    But in one point you are right: It's my opinion. Wish you successful sales.
    Best.

    The Pelikan book is quite old and contains only partial information. For example, it lacks reliable details about Pelikan Milano and other important aspects. Overall, it is a very poor book.

    What a foolish thing to say! For most of us, the 2004 edition of "Pelikan Schreibgeräte" is our most trusted resource.
    No reference source is 100% complete and all encompassing.
    To suggest that the Catawiki auctions are a better source of information about vintage Pelikans just further undermines your credibility.

    Since this thread is derailed already...

    What I find curious is that the section is black. The green pens had a green section. If not authentic (and there have been one-off productions for various companies), I would suppose a green binde was put on a black pen? The provenance is questionable, and I believe that needs pointed out to a potential buyer.

    At any rate, a vintage Pelikan in a decent condition is surely worth the cost of a new M200 - and this pen has a gold nib rather than steel. I think it's priced fairly for a writer, and I think the contrasting green and black color (irrelevant of how it got that way) is not unusual for Pelikan, and in this instance is attractive.
