I bought this but will return if it is a fake piece. It looks good to me. I came in a white cover box. The case got a nice texture and the montblanc logo (please, see the pictures). The manual has the same nice case texture.

The pen itself is beautigul, light (picture). On the middle golden ring, it is written montblanc - generation. (I tried to capture this in Pictures because this may be a telling characteristc that distinguish fake and real). The MB logo on the top cap looks good and symmetric (picture). There is a serial number (picture) and on the inside clip it is written made in germany along with pix (R). Please, be honest to say, real or fake?
