You knew what this was before you even read the title. Everybody recognizes the Mont Blanc 149, the flagship fountain pen of the business community. Its oversized elegance has an oversized reputation. Nothing says one has arrived like whipping out this pen at a job interview, a big closing, a board meeting or any number of other circumstances. Plus, they're just plan fun to write with, as they hold a ton of ink. Why pay full retail of nearly $1,000, when you can buy a gently used one for less than half that amount? Our's is in great condition. No cracks, and only very light wear on the cap and barrel. The clip shows the most wear with only very shallow scratching. You can click the headline to see it better. The filling system works great. This one was made with a serial number, before they put "Pix" under the clip. The 18k two-tone gold nib writes a lush broad line–excellent for a signature pen. 14.8cm capped.
