Condition and information:

Montblanc model 281 ballpoint pen is a late 60s to early 70s production, featuring the famous lever mechanism. This pen is the successor of the previous generation from the early 60s which bore the number 28. This was one of the high-end ballpoint pens at the time to match the 2xx fountain pen series. This Montblanc patented mechanism, also known as the "11th finger mechanism", is a special design feature where a lever is located under the clip, thus when the pen is placed/hanged into a pocket the pocket fabric passing under the clip will push the lever up and turn the pen off. This is a very convenient feature which makes sure the hanged pen will always turn itself off, thus prevent incidental line marks on the jacket fabric (especially good feature for doctors!). The pen is made out of the Montblanc signature material, the Black Resin, which gives the pen a superb luster/shine, but it's also scratch resistant. The mechanism is a joy to use, very easy, pushing the lever down will turn the pen on; pushing it up or hanging it into the pocket will turn it off. It is very precise mechanism easy and fast to deploy with a very nice distinct clicking sound. All trimmings are thick gold filled so gold ware off is very unlikely. Large Montblanc star located on top of the pen. The original Montblanc giant refill is included and it still writes but its nearly depleted - to be used for purchase reference. The pen is in mint condition with minimal signs of use, minor scuffs but no cracks, perfect working and cosmetic order ready to be used.
