Rotkäppchen No. 1

This pen is from the personal collection of Marcwithac - a generous contributor on FPN and vintage pen collector with exceptional taste!

I estimate this particular Rotkappchen No. 1 pen to have been produced in c. 1915 because it has the Montblanc star on its cap top which was only introduced in 1914, and we know that this pen brand was made after WWI started in 1914.

I believe this Rotkäppchen is an exceptionally rare pen, probably amongst the rarest MB models one might find. I haven't even seen pictures of it in popular MB-related books.
