Type Fountain pen
Product Name M800 Souveran, special edition
Manufacturer and Year Pelikan, Germany -- 2013.
Length 5-9/16 inches
Filling System Piston filling system, tested and working well.
Color Brown tortoiseshell lined barrel. The tortoiseshell has wonderful depth, with flashes of both orange and gray. Dark brown (nearly black) cap, piston knob, and section. Gold plated trim. A real classic. Excellent barrel transparency.
Nib 18k 2-tone medium nib. Just like new, super smooth.
Condition Excellent condition. There is one very small hairline crack at the very top of the cap, to the left of the clip and just under the clip ring. It's about 1/8" long, and we've included a close up of this area in the photos. This crack does not in any way affect the pen's writing function, and should remain stable. Other than this, there are no cracks, chips, dents, or dings. This is a large, classic, beautifully colored and patterned pen. The imprints are clear. There's a really great writeup on this pen at The Pelikan's Perch, with information on both the original release from the late 1980s and this 2013 special edition.
No box or paperwork.
