Hepworth Comment

This genuine Montblanc Meisterstuck 146 in black resin offers great value, It is the forerunner to the current Le Grande model. Due to specification modifications over the years. In particular, clip ring markings, and no 'Pix', marking to underside of clip, we are able to date this particular pen to c.1996.
