    Identifying Mont Blanc pens

    I have a number of pens and mechanical pencils which belonged to my father including eight Mont Blanc pens and pencils. My recollection is they were all purchased new by him in the 1970's. Is there a way I can identify the pens and determine if they have any value? I would like to keep one or two and sell the remainder.
    He also had small cabinets filled with 60's and 70's vintage mechanical pencils, mostly Pentels but a few German ones as well. Does anyone collect those or are they of no value?

    Re: Identifying Mont Blanc pens

    The Montblanc pens and pencils definitely have value. Hard to tell which models they are from the photographs but the black fountain pen could be a 149 and depending on the age and condition (which looks immaculate) should be worth $300+. Ballpens and pencils generally do not have such high values but new are $170-$250 each. The smaller versions are probably the 146. All highly collectible and sought after on the secondhand market. Do you have original boxes as well? If you decided to sell the buyer would want to know nib sizes as well as condition.

    Certainly the pencil collection is also valuable - I can see some Staedtler Lumographs in the top drawer - and there will be a collector out there who would grab them as a set in that cabinet.

    There are specialist forums with Sales pages (including this one of course) and finally if you need to, there is always eBay.

    Good luck if you decide to sell them.

    Re: Identifying Mont Blanc pens

    Thanks for the reply. I do not know how to grade pens, but they were stored in dedicated leather holsters and are in beautiful condition. I'm including a close-up of the nibs for the three fountain pens. The fountain pens appear to be part of a set as I find matching pencils, and in two cases, matching ballpoint pens. I have what appear to be two of the original boxes and warranty booklets but no receipts, which is unusual for my dad as he usually kept every bit of paper. To put my father in perspective, he owned a Porsche 356 cabriolet and in 35 years never once folded the top down. He built a customer hanger in the garage so he could lift the top off for when he wanted to drive without it.

    The pen on the left is a 146 likely a 70s to early 80s model. The next pen is a puzzler. It should have a gold band at the nib end of the section. The style would be a 144 if authentic. The one on the far right is a 220 from the mid 60s.
