Condition and information:
This is the last model of the legendary Pelikan 120 line (Type III), launched in 1977-78. The model 120 in it's 3 variation is the longest produced pen in the Pelikan's history, produced for over 30 years, and the only one which was preceded by two other models baring the same insignia "120", type I and II. As a matter of fact, in 2016 Pelikan launched a 4th generation Pelikan 120 model, nearly identical to the original 1st model. This speaks volumes about the reliability, popularity, design and value this pen has. This is not a coincidence, the 120 Model was one of the pillars of the company. This pen closely resembles the MK line on which is based on, and it has it's signature features, such as air tight cap and feeding system which make the pen airplane safe. The nib is nice, stainless steel gold gold plated, typical of the MK line, EF size, Extra Fine. These are one of the most precise nibs one could hope to write it, always producing a super sharp extra fine line. They are best used for precision writing, very clean with no excess ink, great for small typeface letters, writing in notebooks  and even drawing. The pen is made out of black resin, unlike other materials the resin always shines and it's more difficult to damage or crack. Piston is smooth and one of the best piston systems invented by Pelikan, consisting of 8 parts. This series are very reliable, the pen works and writes perfectly. The third series follows the modern age of elongated and thinner pens, unlike its predecessors with shorter but thicker bodies. This is the most rare of the three series as it was produces for only few years. The pen is in mint condition, perfectly clean and shiny, no scratches and no cracks.
