Pen barrel and cap are free from scratches, with no cracks, hairline’s, dents, or personalisation. Gold plating to clip and trim is excellent. Resin has high gloss sheen.

Hepworth Comment

This Montblanc Meisterstuck 146 in black resin, is the forerunner to the current Le Grande model. Due to specification modifications over the years, in particular, the single piece barrel, mono-tone 14K nib, round split BHR ink feed, clip ring markings, resin piston operating screw and pale blue ink viewing window, we are able to date this particular pen to 1975/77,
