No. 30 Push knob Filler (Azurite)
This pen is from the personal collection of Kawuska - an FPN member that has inspired many of us with his pen collection, photography, and craftsmanship in penmaking!
In 1924 Montblanc introduced the "Meisterstück" series which was intended to be the company's top-of-the-line offering. At that time, the pens were numbered based on their price. So, No. 30 meant that it cost 30 Reichsmark (RM) which was the currency in Germany at the time. The smaller numbers meant that the pens cost less but also that they were smaller in size. The No. 30 was positioned in the middle of the line up at around 13.6 cm capped. The smallest was the No. 20 and the largest was the No. 45. You can read more about these pens on our website.
