Details

Type  Rollerball pen

Product Name  Cosmopolitan 1849 E-W.  The limited edition is inspired to the legendary epic of the gold rush which saw, starting from the year 1849, thousands of courageous individuals from all over the world undertaking the adventure of emigrating from the eastern states of America to the legendary West, in search of gold but also of a better life. An event which contributed to forging the American spirit with its optimism, tireless dynamism and belief in itself. The story of this journey is traced on barrel and cap: the pioneer's wagon trains give way to those of the gold prospectors, followed by the gradual colonisation of California, the construction of gold mines and the building of the railway.

Manufacturer and Year  Montegrappa, Italy -- 2005

Length  5-3/8".

Filling System  Takes international rollerball refills. A working Omas refill is installed. The pen unscrews just under the cone.

Color  The Cosmopolitan 1849 E-W special version in sterling silver, exclusively for the American market, decorated with fine lacquering and precious stones reproducing a star and the colors of the American flag on the top of the cap.   The story of the journey is traced on barrel and cap: the pioneer's wagon trains give way to those of the gold prospectors, followed by the gradual colonisation of California, the construction of gold mines and the building of the railway.  1849 E-W is realised in low-relief engraving, an exclusive technique which Montegrappa has perfected to achieve an engraving of varying depth with an exceptional three-dimensional quality in its details, a true picture sculpted from precious metal. 

Condition  Excellent condition, in a beautiful light wooden box, with all paperwork.  There are no cracks, chips, dents, or dings. There are 3 pieces of the enamel missing from the top of the cap -- see photo below.  This is a heavy, ornate, gorgeous pen.    The cone has a little bit of scratching on it.    All imprints are clear.

Policies

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.

Promo Codes and Coupons: You need to be registered and logged in in order to use one of our promo codes. They can each only be used once per customer. If you have problems getting a promo code to be accepted, sometimes it helps to log out and log back in again.
