    Mont Blanc Pen Replicas Questions

    Okay, so guys looking at Dhgate / Aliexpress at pens and I found this one.

    http://www.dhgate.com/product/pure-p...arl|3663087537

    I just need your opinion about it.


    Do you guys think it'll be durable/write well?

    FYI this is the Princess Grace de Monaco rep.

    They're a nice enough copy IF it's the same as the one I have.

    They're nothing like the quality of the gen but they're also not $1800.

    They don't stand up to scrutiny by anyone who bothers to check them against the original, even in pics but they are nice in their own right.

    One drop in its end (logo end) will likely break it like mine.

    They write well because you can put a gen refill or quality compatible in them. Weight is ok so it feels nice in the hand.

    Due to what it is, it's more a "feminine" pen IMHO and if you're giving it as a gift don't try to con the recipient. It never ends well

    Original boxes are nearly impossible to get.
    once, I had no idea that I had no idea .... but I really had no idea

              You know, you can buy a used GEN Montblanc on eBay if you do some searching, check the correct tells, serial #'s, etc.

                I have been collecting Gen MB pens for decades and have over 100 in my collection. In all seriousness, pens may be even more impossible than watches to rep. There is a feel to MB resin like no other, and the weight distribution is what MB is all about (as well as the nibs). Fake MB rollerballs and ballpoints abound, but no person with MB cred would ever believe that such a pen is even real upon a first glance. Reps seldom represent fountain pens correctly, so all of us Gen collectors only write with FP's if only for that reason. There is no real market for the fakers to make fake Kafka, Twain, Collodi, etc nibs, so the fakes for MB LE's FP's simply do not exist. I bought a 1982 149 recently for $175 on eBay. It is real and it is spectacular. Save your money and buy a gen, folks.

                  Rush, MB has not always used serial numbers. Recent pens have them, but serial numbers on MB's only came into common use in the early 90's. Even so, early Writers editions only had sequence and not serial numbers.

                    My gen 1982 149, for instance has not a serial number to be found. Typical for this issue is the tag "W. Germany" on the clip and an ebony hand made feeder. Close up pictures of the feeder, the nib, and the spacing between the cone and the body of the pen when in the full filling position are hallmarks of a genuine pen in terms of pictures. Weight, balance, and resin quality if one has this item in hand as well.
