Condition and information:
These are the flagship pens of the MK line, late 60s and early 70s production, the M30 & R30 Rolled Gold models. Unlike gold plate, the rolled gold will never ware off, it is meant to last. This model stands out both in quality, materials and appeal. The pens are in a time capsule - NOS new old stock, never used condition, and come in their original presentation box, as well as the carton box with their proper model numbers marked on it, as they were sold at the time. The box also comes with the original instruction slip.
The fountain pen is a charm to write with, a nice large tip nib, which is solid 14K gold, and nearly fully flexible and sof M size. It will write larger sizes when pressed gently on the down and even side strokes, up to B and even BB, meant to be used for many writing styles. It can even write thinner lines if just letting it glide on the paper or adjusting the writing angle slightly. Nice purple ink window and logo located on top of the cap. Crisp imprints and very nice guilloche lines. Piston is very smooth with all of its original parts. These MK pistons were the peak of piston technology by Pelikan. The piston and feed system in this pen have around 8 parts, unlike the old pistons made out of 3-4 moving parts. This was meant to keep the ink always in place, also to be able to be used in different pressure variations like airplanes and so on, and they were marketed as "Airplane Safe Fountain Pens". The ballpoint pen is highest quality even by today's standards, hard to match pen both in style and endurance. It has a push "upper body" mechanism. The lower body is tick black resin, well balanced with perfect grip and ease of use. Comes with its original refill as well a new one which we will include in the set. All in all, one of the best Pelikan pen sets in amazing find, pure NOS condition. Both pens bare a third party company insignia on the side, however nicely engraved, most likely in the Pelikan factory, and not compromising to the look or appearance of the pens.
