Gold plating  to clip and dress rings is excellent with no pitting or brassing. Cap lip stampings are bold and clear. Barrel and section have a high gloss sheen.

Hepworth Comment

The 1960's model 74 is the rolled gold cap version of the Meisterstuck 14. This particular fountain pen is a early model, having BHR nib and feeder retaining collar. This stunning fountain pen has seen very little use, and has been very well cared for.
