Condition and information:
The pen offered here is the legendary 342 model, in it's most rare form, the olive green color. Only very few of these pens survived by today, as they were made in extremely low quantities. Usually the green pen represented the ink color the user intended to use, thus these were considered a specialty pens and were rarely sold in public, rather by a custom orders in Montblanc shops. The pen is identical to its 342 black model. The pen is in mint condition, not restored, originally preserved, no scratches, no dings, no cracks, only minimal signs of use. This model is famous for its reliability, perfection in simplicity, both in design and functionality, and most importantly famous for its performance, there is nothing that can go wrong with it and its perfectly reliable. The pen has perfect form factor, superb balance, handling and feel, easy to use yet powerful and reliable writing instrument. The pen comes with its original semi-flexible nib placed on an ebonite feeder and feed ring. It will write bigger sizes like M or B if pressed harder, but this is not its domain. The pen is perfect precise writer, wet but soft and pleasant to write with. The "342 Montblanc" inscribed on the ring, indicating the early production 1956-1958, unlike 3-42 or 3-42G of later Monte Rosa production. Please do not confuse this model with its later model the 3-42G which was produced later 1958-59 and the G indicated the pen was fitted with gold nib as there were 342 with steel nibs due to shortages of gold in Germany after the WWII. The pen here is the original 342, where all these were fitted with gold nibs. The "342" imprint is also located at the base of the nib. Amazing completely clear ink window that will change color to whatever ink is inside the pen. The original silicone cork, one of the first Montblanc pens to feature a new generation at the time, silicone cork. Piston is smooth with brass components and a star shaped cross-section spiral guided shaft, meant to last forever. Logo located on top of the cap. Simply one of the best Montblancs of the 50's, one of the all time best and definitely one of the rarest Montblanc pens.
