[SOLD]Pelikan 140 Green Striated $110
[SOLD]Pelikan 140 Green Striated
Beautiful Pelikan 140 with an original EF 14k flex nib. Excellent clarity on the barrel allowing easy view of remaining ink level. Piston has been serviced, and is silky smooth when operating for filling/expelling ink. The clip has superb tension and the gold trim on the clip is near perfect. The cap band has some wear, but still can easily see with the naked eye "Germany", and "Pelikan 140". The stock EF gold nib writes more like a Fine and flexes to BB+. The nib unit can be removed, but the collar is stuck inside the section. Making the nib/feed friction fit instead of screwed in and out. The pen does not leak, and removal of the collar will require a sharp knife wedged into the collar which will unscrew. I don't have the tools to create a new collar to make this pen good as new, but it functions fine, and if the collar ever has to be removed can be done. Besides the trim wear on the cap band, and the seized collar the pen is very clean and writes amazingly well. These Pelikan nibs are amazingly smooth with some flex which I believe everyone should have in their rotation or at least try once. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 12.5cm capped, 14.3cm posted, and 11.3cm unposted.
