Condition and information:

The most famous Pelikan pen, the model 140 in tortoise green. The Pelikan 140 is one of the most sought after Pelikan pens, extremely reliable and perfect writer for all kinds of uses. It features the original 1950's nib with the signature Pelikan nib curvature which gives it a very nice viewing space and flexibility while writing. The nib is smooth, gliding on the paper, very precise. It's suspended over the original ebonite feed, which provides for a constant ink-flow and no skipping. More importantly it has the original ebonite/hard rubber collar/feed ring, which holds the nib to the feed. This small but crucial part was later changed to plexiglas like material which almost always cracked and rendered many 140 pens useless. This original early production ebonite collar is semi-flexible and never cracks. The Piston filling is very smooth and easy to use, takes a considerable amount of ink, with the original double seal silicone cork which never leaks. These were the first Pelikan pens to use the silicone cork which later became industry standard. Very clean body, beautifully tortoise green transparent, thus the whole body basically represents the ink window with crisp tortoise stripes. Logo is located on top of the cap. The pen is in absolute mint, perfect cosmetic and functional condition, no scratches or cracks. Perfectly balanced pen with great writing experience and a reliable everyday pen. Timeless design, classic form factor, a stunning looks and perfect writing instrument that will last for decades.
