Condition and information:
The Montblanc model 1846 ballpoint pen is one of the very few pens which was given the number 1 at the start, indicating the Masterpiece/Meisterstuck designation, reserved for the very best pens made by Montblanc. The pen was the flagship ballpoint offered from the early 1970s to bit over mid 1970s. It is very thick gold plate, close to gold filled, so no gold wear off is possible. The pen features the famous lever mechanism. This 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 which makes sure the hanged pen will always turn itself off, thus prevent incidental line marks on the jacket fabric (especially good feature for people in white coats). This 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 very precise mechanism easy and fast to deploy with a very nice distinct clicking sound. Large Montblanc star located on top of the pen. The original Montblanc giant refill is included but its depleted. We will include a substitute refill which will make the pen ready to use. The pen comes in NOS condition, never used, still with original carton box, presentation box and papers. The stamp 1846 is located on the carton box as it was sold ~40 years ago, a perfectly preserved time capsule rare pen.
