Mont Blanc Serial Number Lookup

Montblanc introduced serial numbers in 1991 in some sort of attempt tocounter the replica/counterfeit market. This has not beenparticularly effective. In general, all Montblancs made after 1991should have a serial number, but remember that there are still aconsiderable number of used pens that date from before that, so lackof a serial number may mean only that it is an older pen. The font ofthe serial number has changed at least once; the early ons (such as my1991 MB146) is block-lettered, while current ones use a font thatresembles the computer-readable numbers in a personal check. I am notsure when the switch occurred.

To make matters more complicated, Montblanc does reuse serial numbers(they are issued randomly with no discernable pattern),so two pens with the same serial number could still be genuine. It islikely that they would be different models and separated by many yearsin time, though. I am told they do not keep any database of serialnumbers except for the limited edition pens.

The cap band on older ones will usually be marked "MontblancMeisterstuck No.146" but newer ones omit the model number; my2009 says "Montblanc Meisterstuck Pix." I think this changeoccurred in the early 2000s.

The rather plain single-tone nib on the 146 was eventually replaced bythe 2-tone nib in use today. This change occurred sometime in thelate 1980s or early 1990s. This particular example can be dated toexactly 1991 as it is both marked W-Germany and has a serial number.I imagine the introduction of the slotted ink window must have comelater.

Although there are a very small number of authentic old Montblanc pens that will not have a serial number in this location, all authentic modern Montblanc pens will. You are then able to double-check the serial number on your fountain pen via the Official Montblanc website to double-check the details for the registered pen against the pen you own.

As we touched on above, the vast majority of authentic Montblanc pens that have been manufactured after 1991 will include a serial number that you are able to check against the official Montblanc records. Most of these serial numbers start with two numbers that are then followed by seven letters although there are a small number of exceptions but these are on older Montblanc pens that have a slightly different format for their serial number.if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[300,250],'pickypens_com-large-leaderboard-2','ezslot_4',198,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-pickypens_com-large-leaderboard-2-0');There are still a large number of Montblanc pens that were produced prior to the change in 1991 that will still have a unique identifier on them that you are able to use to confirm that they are an authentic Montblanc. The main issue comes with the pens from 1909 (extremely rare to find and usually only sold between collectors) all the way up to the 1970s where serial numbers and unique identifiers were not included with the pen as standard.

Due to the excellent build quality of Montblanc and the ability of their pens to last decades and in some cases, generations as people hand them to their children with some reports of the pen actually ended up in the hands of the original owners grandchild, there are still many of the older pens in circulation. This is where the registered Montblanc dealers come in as the nibmeisters in these stores should be able to help confirm if your older Montblanc pen is authentic or not.How Can You Tell Is A Montblanc Pen Is Fake?if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[300,250],'pickypens_com-leader-1','ezslot_5',199,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-pickypens_com-leader-1-0');As we touched on above, the counterfeiters are getting better and better at making fake Montblanc pens look like the real deal and in recent years, outside of confirming the serial number on your pen with Montblanc as covered above, it can be very difficult to confirm your Montblanc pen is authentic. Speciallist dealers are usually the best route to take but if your pen is older and does not have any of the modern security features on it as standard then the counterfeiters task can be much easier.

That said though, there are a large number of certified Montblanc partners who will have their own accounts on amazon as well as the pre-owned market making up a large share of the pens available too. That said though, it would be easy for a counterfeiter to slip fake pens in amongst the listing to try and make a quick buck, this is why we recommend that you only purchase your Montblanc pens from the official Montblanc accounts.ConclusionThat brings our articles going how you are able to tell if your Montblanc is real or not to an end. Thankfully, the serial number system is much better on the more recent production runs for Montblanc pens but the older your pen model, the harder it is to verify that it is a real, authentic Montblanc.if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[300,250],'pickypens_com-large-mobile-banner-2','ezslot_8',601,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-pickypens_com-large-mobile-banner-2-0');
