Hepworth Comment
 
Most montblanc collectors will be aware of the 1950's models 252, 254 and 256. These pens had slip-on caps and winged nibs. The 264 was only produced for two years from 1957 to 1959. Its design, although similar in appearance to the 25x series, the 264 incorporates a more traditional open style nib and more importantly the mostly preferred screw-on cap. Earlier versions had a plain cap lip band and a Montblanc logo on side of cap. This later version has model number on cap lip band with no model heat stamping to piston turning knob. This pen is fitted with it's original and nib, which is an absolute delight to write with.
