Type Piston filling fountain pen. Serial number MBKJ5PYO4 is engraved on the clip's retaining ring.
Product Name Heritage Collection Rouge et Noir - Spider Metamorphosis
Manufacturer and Year Montblanc, Germany -- this model was first produced in 2013, and we think that it was retired in the last couple of years.
Length 5-3/8" long. The cap does not post on the end of the barrel.
Filling System Piston-filler. We have tested it and it is working well.
Color Black lacquer barrel and black resin cap. The cap finial is coral red with the white star. Silver-colored trim with a silver metal section. There is an elaborate band at the top of the cap decorated with a spider on a web - Montblanc only describes this as "metal with a vintage look".
Nib MEDIUM Montblanc 14k gold nib with a spider embossed on the surface.
Condition Near mint condition in box, with papers. There are some small scratches on the blind cap, but the rest of the pen looks great. The clip has some marks on it, which may be patina/tarnish consistent with the "vintage metal", or possibly some brassing. No cracks, chips, dings or dents, personalization, or plating wear. The cap finial is pristine. The box looks great, almost perfect.
