Condition and information:
Montblanc model 38 ballpoint pen is a mid-60s production, the predecessor to many such models to come in the 1970s and even 1980s. This was one of the high-end ballpoint pens at the time to match the 2xx fountain pen series.
The Montblanc patented mechanism, also known as the "11th finger mechanism", is a special design feature where a lever is located under the clip, thus when the pen is placed/hanged into a pocket the pocket fabric passing under the clip will push the lever up and turn the pen off. This is a very convenient feature that makes sure the hanged pen will always turn itself off, thus prevent incidental line marks on the jacket fabric (especially a good feature for people in white coats). The pen is made out of the Montblanc signature material, the Black Resin, which gives the pen a superb luster/shine, but it's also scratch-resistant. The mechanism is a joy to use, very easy, pushing the lever down will turn the pen on; pushing it up or hanging it into the pocket will turn it off. It is a very precise mechanism easy and fast to deploy with a very nice distinct clicking sound. All trimmings are thick gold plated so gold wear off is very unlikely. Large Montblanc star located on top of the pen.
