Description:

No. 146 G green striated celluloid turning knob-filler, gold-filled clip, cap rings and trim, central band engraved "MASTERPIECE" (indicating that the pen was created for the UK and North American markets). 134mm.  14K gold two-tone 4810 Montblanc circle-vent nib, slight flex; low-profile "ski slope" feed allowing a lower writing angle and greater versatility.  Immaculate condition, lightest rubs to clip. Just gorgeous.  The green striated version is rarer than the grey striated, and more treasured by collectors.
