Condition and information:
This is the last type of the legendary Pelikan 120 line (Type III) launched in 1977-78. The model 120 is one the longest produced pen in Pelikan's history, produced for over 30 years, and the only one which was preceded by two other models bearing the same insignia "120", type I and II. As a matter of fact, in 2016 Pelikan launched a 4th generation Pelikan 120 model, nearly identical to the original 1st model. This speaks volumes about the reliability, popularity, design and value of this model. This is not a coincidence, the 120 Models were one of the pillars of the company. This third model in the 120 series is based entirely on the MK series, and its still not known why Pelikan decided to mark some of these pens with a 120 insignia, when in fact the pen is nearly identical to the MK line. But one thing is for sure, this pen was made for a short period of time, and hence its now one of the rarest 120s out there. The pen has it's signature MK features, such as air tight cap and feeding system which make the pen airplane safe. The nib is a nice standard EF size, gold plated, not very flexible but still feels soft while writing, producing a very nice extra fine line, and since the pen hasn't been used it is very smooth. The pen is made out of black and green resin, unlike other materials the resin always shines and its more difficult to damage or crack. The piston is smooth and one of the best piston systems invented by Pelikan, consisting of 8 parts. This series are very reliable, the pen works and writes perfectly. The third series follows the modern age of elongated and thinner pens, unlike its predecessors with shorter but thicker bodies. Logo located on top of the cap. The pen is in mint condition, perfectly clean and shiny, no scratches and no cracks, ready to be used.
