Pre-Owned Pens: Pelikan 200

Pre-Owned Pens: 1881 Pelikan 200
Era: 1980-present
Price: $75.00
If ever there was a pen that was a true mensch, it would have to be the Pelikan 200. Inexpensive, light weight, goes anywhere and it is always a dependable and smooth writer. Okay, so it doesn't have a gold nib like its same-sized brother, the 400. Who cares. A great writer is a great writer. Our Pelikan 200 is in good working order. The piston works well, and the gold-alloy nib writes a very smooth medium. The cap is marked "W. Germany." It and the barrel have some wear, but there are no cracks. The cap topper has 2 pelican chicks with the mama, and the etching is filled with a golden color. We have been filling and refilling it with water to clear out some old red ink. We might not get it all. Otherwise, a perfect daily user. 12.6cm capped.
