I've got a really old fountain pen made by Remington. A dealer told me it was the only one they ever made. He tried VERY hard to get it... for up to $300. I figured it must be worth more so I still have it. That was about 20 years ago.
Listen, I saw this post from 2006. I don't know if you are still around. Anyway, I have a bunch of minor brand fountain pens that I restore. I am trying to find a market for them. I am in the Los Angeles Ca. area. I exhibit at the annual Pen Show in Manhattan Beach. I have Remingtons, and lots of off the wall names, none of which are worth anywhere near $300. Mine are from $15 to $35 each, and each is ready to go. 1920's to 1950's. If you have an email address, I could send some images. Let me know. Thanks. David

Mont Blanc pens are injection molded plastic. There's a seam somewhere in there that's polished over and invisible but there. They are fragile and they are extremely overpriced pens that Madison Avenue did a great job promoting. For a similar amount of money for a modern pen a Parker Duofold is a far better choice made of a solid casting of acrylic. For far less money an Esterbrook is a cool older pen that has nostalgia and history and uniqueness.
