You can stick pictures and links into posts, too! (Don't mind the crappy picture!)

@jimc I am sorry, I do not know! I bought it used. I believe it is from the 1970s or 1980s, or possibly older. It does not have a serial number, only the word GERMANY on the back of the pocket clip hoop. It is engraved with the name of a former owner on the pocket clip: K.A. CALLAGHAN. That's all I have. It is on the lighter side, not heavy. The nib says 4810 14K MONTBLANC.

@zztype  My paternal ancestry is CALLAGHAN! (with variety of spellings). Nice find!

@zztype  Might be around a Model 144 or 145 Classique, cartridge/converter, slip cap (not screw), may have "Meisterstuck" on cap band with Montblanc, monochrome 14k yeoow gold, probably no ink window, slim lightweight, great writer - and from the time range of 70's/80's give or take. Or, if piston filler with ink window, may be 146.  P. S. I'm amazed at the really obscure reference in the news article from decades ago.

Aloha All, well this is a giant leap forward for the club. Thanks to Blaine!

I likely won’t be able to make this Sat. We’re putting an extension on the house. I am the painter (ugh.) Well, I like painting but this is a huge amount of work. I’ll have to see how it goes.  Y’all have a good meet if I’m not there. Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Quanza and Happy New Year. There. That ought to satisfy Trump. 🤣

Hi Lianne! I haven't made checking this site a habit yet. Have to figure out how to use this rather than emailing. 🙂

Hope you're doing alright.
