I do rotate thru them every other month or depending on the occassion. Right now I am using my grandfathers 149 and the diamond tipped le grand rollerball (both on right side top row). The 146 helps me take notes and the rollerball helps with math....can't explain it...but works for me.
Late last year I was using the 100th anniversary for everything. Maybe next month switch to a ballpoint and fountain pen combo. The color of the ink sets the tone...I guess.
I don't believe in buying a pen or watch as an investment....you have to use them so it becomes a part of who you are.
MB 149 pictured above....it should be around 45-50 years old....still writes like new....

I am not sure what they call this one....but it has a diamond of some sort where the star usually is. A very comfortable rollerball.
Sorry for the poor quality images. Did not know you could tell age of these by the nibs. Both the pens in the above image have purple ink in them now....the 149 and the traveller seem to have gold and silver nibs. The 149 looks like it may have 3 shades....but hard to tell. The traveller has 2 shades of nib metal.
I recently filled up the 149 and I think the threads are brass/gold colored. There is no serial number on the 149.
