Vintage Montblanc - Meisterstuck #149 4810 14c 585 Fountain Pen Two Tone Rare For Sale

Vintage Montblanc - Meisterstuck #149 4810 14c 585 Fountain Pen Two Tone Rare

Up for offer......Vintage Montblanc - Meisterstuck 149 4810 14c 585 Fountain Pen Two Tone ....The item is pre-owned and great condition....There a few thing so to mention , the gold tone area at the tip of the pen has a few spots ( I have taken close up pics for you to see) and the box has some staining. It is in the vintage white/cream box with gold edging...Other then that the pen is in wonderful condition. I was doing some research on the different pens styles. Now the box came with two paper instructions for pen models 146 and 149. On the gold receipt it states style # 146 and the pen is clearly marked 149....I think it is very cool, the pen was purchased back in 1976 on 57th st in NYC.....So cool. I also was doing some research on google and found that the earlier model pens were made slightly different. Talking about have a slightly raised ring at the base of the pen. Yes I have that raised feel and can she it is a ring. I am not an expert on these pens and writing what I can see.....I am going to copy and paste the info I found on the earlier models. Also that the shaft is all one piece. Please see all pictures and email me with any questions.
Evolution of Design Features Montblanc Meisterstuck 149

Around 1991 they switched from 14k nibs to 18k nibs exclusively.

The cap band on very early (first-year?) 149s is different. Rather than 3 gold bands, the center band is gold while the two smaller side bands are sterling silver. Pens with these bands come from very early production and are extremely valuable to collectors. Other earlier cap bands would say Masterpiece (US and UK) or Chef d'Oeuvre (French) instead of Meisterstuck; these were made for the export market and thus had Meisterstuck translated into the appropriate languages.

Another feature of early 149s is that the trim ring at the filler knob end is an actual ring and protrudes very slightly. On current 149s, this band is completely flush against the side. This change occurred by 1972. The piston filler itself comes in at least three variants: a white metal housing (1952-late 1950s), an all-plastic mechanism (late 1950s-1990), and a brass housing (1990-current).

The barrel has undergone one significant design change that is not very visible externally. Prior to 1985, the entire barrel was a single piece of plastic. After 1985, the barrel was made in two pieces: the barrel up to and including the ink window, and then the section with the nib that joins up where the ink window ends.

Barry Gabay has the following list of known 149 nib variants with approximate dates. The 2-tone has a platinum-plated center and gold edge, while the 3-tone is gold-platinum-gold. The cut-out tail present in some pens is a notch in the nib that mates against the feed and prevents it from moving or rotating. This feature cannot be seen without disassembling the nib and feed.

  • 14C, 3 tone, tapered shoulders (1952-1959)
  • 14C, 3 tone, broad shoulders (1960-1972)
  • 18C, 3 tone, broad shoulders (1952-1959 European market)
  • 14C, 2 tone, narrow shoulders (1972-1985)
  • 14C, 2 tone, flexible nib (1960s-1970s)
  • 14K, 2 tone, broad shoulders (1985-1988)
  • 14K, 2 tone, broad shoulders, cut-out tail (1988-1990)
  • 14K, 2 tone, narrow shoulders (1985-1988)
  • 14K, 2 tone, narrow shoulders, cut-out tail (1988-1990)
  • 18K, 2 tone, broad shoulders (1991-1994)
  • 18k, 3 tone, broad shoulders, used on Hemingway and later 149s (1995-1999)
  • 18K, 3 tone, narrow shoulders, cut-out tail (1999-current)

The early 149s (1950s vintage) are slightly smaller than the current size and have the model number heat-stamped on the filler cone. The celluloid pens have a celluloid star that yellows with age; any 149 with a slightly yellowed star is a pretty old one.
