For your consideration, we are offering for sale this recently serviced Beautiful Circa 1995 Montblanc No 147 Traveler's Legrand MEISTERSTUCK Fountain Pen with Fine Nib in Excellent Condition. This fountain pen has been cleaned, put back together, and now is in wonderful writing condition. Guaranteed to be an original Montblanc pen.
This Montblanc 147 Traveler's LeGrand Fountain Pen dates somewhere in the mid 1990s - they began production of the Traveler's in 1994. The 147 Traveler's Fountain Pen is the same size as a LeGrand, this pen has a screw-in brass cartridge tray, rather than the internal piston fill system that is usual with the LeGrand and Diplomat fountain pens.The idea for this was because the ink is contained in a fairly air-tight compartment, it is less affected by pressure changes and therefore easier to travel with due to no leaking. It is also more convenient since you only have to carry spare cartridges, rather than a bottle of ink! This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the gorgeous Gold Filled Clip and Cap Banding which display absolutely no wear. The sides of the cap clip are stamped with, "GERMANY" and the serial number, "HI1005607".
The cap banding is stamped with, "MONTBLANC MEISTERSTUCK". I have cleaned, buffed, and polished the cap and barrel. The ink cartridge tray opens and closes easily.
There are no monograms or personalizations to either the barrel or cap. This Montblanc 147 Fountain Pen measures 5 5/8" in length capped and 6 3/8" posted. The Montblanc NIB is a 14K/585 Bi-Color Medium NIB. The 14K Montblanc NIB has a fine point measuring roughly. 57mm when measured with digital calipers.
When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a fine to broad stroke/line and smoothly I might add. The writing sample provided in the image has a fine to broad stroke measuring between. 92mm when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Montblanc Blue Ink.These Montblanc 147 Traveler's Fountain Pens are very difficult to acquire due to the limited production time frame and the Bordeaux color. I would grade this fine writing instrument in Near Mint Condition. It is ready to write or just add to your writing arsenal collection. Please review all my images as they are part of the description. If you have any questions, please ask.
