Montblanc 136 BHR & Celluloid 1st Issue Fountain Pen 1936. 14C 235 F/M Full Flex Nib. Fabulous Flex Writer full of personality. 1st Issue Telescopic Piston works perfect. Pen has ZERO Splits, Cracks or Repairs etc. Made in Germany between 1936-38 ONLY in this exact form. This wonderful Montblanc is a TRUE first issue. These early model 136 were the first piston filler pen Montblanc EVER made. 1st launched in 1936 along side model 134 132,138 & 139. Came later 1937-39 these Telescopic Piston pens are where it all began for Montblanc in terms of having a unique filling system they designed them selves. Prior to the model 136 ALL earlier Montblanc pens were copies of other manufacturers pens. Eye Droppers, Safety, Lever, Nibs and Feeds all copied Waterman and Parker Duofold for their Button fill pens etc. Although other manufacturers like Pelikan made Piston fill pens 7 years before Montblanc it was the Metal Telescopic Piston Montblanc invented that was head and shoulders above everyone else’s. However it was so expensive and complex to manufacture Montblanc stopped production in 1958 and reverted to the much cheaper to manufacture and simpler Pelikan design plastic single action piston. So only Meisterstuck pens made between 1936-58 have these fabulous Telescopic Metal Pistons. These were also the first Montblanc pens to use Celluloid although these 1st issue are only the Barrel. Cap, Front Section (part you hold when writing), Piston Housing and Tail End are ALL BHR (Black Hard Rubber). By 1938-39 they also had Celluloid Caps but still issued BHR Caps on some pens up to 1944. However the unique Montblanc-Meisterstuck Cap imprint is only foend on 1936-39 BHR caps. Later caps have no side imprints. Same rule apply with early Celluloid Caps. The rare two tone 235 14C nib was ONLY made from 1935-38 and was ONLY ever issued to Meisterstuck models 126, 136 and 106 from 1935-38. After 1938 Germany had a ban on Gold manufacture of ANYTHING non military. So from 1938-45 Montblanc 235 Nibs were made of Steel and a very few in Palladium. After 1945 they re numbered the nibs from 235 to 136. So this pen for sale can ONLY date between 1936 and 1938. Just serviced with new cork. Works and writes as when new. C ome s ready to write just add your favorite colour bottled ink… Perfect as a gift or treat yourself to a wonderful collectible fountain pen that can be used and enjoyed daily..
