In our humble opinion, Pelikan consistently makes the best modern luxury pens today. This Pelikan 800 Souveran is extra special for several reasons. It is old enough to have been made in West Germany, and it has the much debated "P/F" nib! It is a two-tone 18c gold nib with "P/F" stamped in an oval on the right side of the nib. Some folks says this signifies nothing. Others say it means it was given flex. And additional people think it was some kind of stamp for French sold pens. No one seems 100% certain, but P/F's do seem more desirable among many Pelikan enthusiasts. Ours is in great working order, and the nib writes the fine line it as marked as having. However, you can make it flex to a broad. Definitely not a wet noodle, but semi-flex is fair to say. The topper and tail have a golden logo and disc. The logo includes 2 baby pelicans. Light overall wear but nothing that stands out. 13.9cm capped.
