Hepworth Comment

The Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 is Montblanc's flagship fountain pen. Dating this genuine Meisterstuck 149 can not be exact, but due to specification modifications over the years, in particular, the triple tone 18C nib (as opposed to 18K), round BHR ink feeder with no longitudinal grooves, clip ring markings and resin piston operating screw, we are able date this particular pen to between 1969 to 1975 manufacture.
