One pen dominates the boardroom like no other: the Mont Blanc 149. From New York to Hong Kong, businessmen and women recognize it as the global symbol of success. Brand new ones cost nearly $1,000. Save a bundle with our gently used authentic 149 that is in perfect working order. Sporting the much-sought-after two-tone 14k gold nib, this preowned luxury pen has only light wear. A couple little marks but no cracks or chips. It seems to have been made as the late '80s transitioned into the early '90s. Split ebonite inkfeed, black plastic threads under the blind cap, the 14k nib and just Germany written on the clip band. It holds a ton of ink, and the nib writes a fine line with a light touch that soon turns medium with a little pressure. However, it really isn't a flex nib at the moment.
