Found a model of pen I've wanted for several years now from a collector over in Germany. It's a pre-war, 1939, Mont Blanc 226 in a lovely green striped celluloid! It was a step down from the top line 100 series and has a lovely soft F 14k nib which was somewhat typical of German pens of the period. This pen makes a modern Miesterstuck series with it's stiff fancy two - toned nib seem like  some pocket jewelry which is really all they produce today Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Nice score Michael.

How does it feel in the hand and how does the nib feel on paper? Does it need any tweaks?

It has the typical soft, flexible, smoothe nib of the era, not the stiff thing they call a nib today. But this pen was made when they made writing instruments, not pocket jewelry! It has a nice black hard rubber section with the body and cap being made of beautiful striped green celluloid. It's a medium sized pen and feeels right with the cap posted!  This makes the 5th MB from the pre-war era that I have and will find lots of pocket & writing time for sure ! Twisted Evil

Amazingly beautiful pen, Michael. They sure knew how to make a nice pen, then. Very Happy

Superb find there. Love the softer feel the old nibs had. Gives a far more expressive look to the writing.
