Hepworth Comment

This Montblanc Meisterstuck Le Grand in black resin, is the latest incarnation of the Montblanc Meisterstuck 146 model. Due to specification modifications over the years, we are able to date this particular pen to c.1996. This particular Montblanc Le Grand fountain pen, based on the lack of ware to the writing tip, appears to have been rarely used from new.
