The name 'Meisterstück' was first used for a Montblanc in 1924 designating this range 'Masterpieces'. These pens have 14 carat gold nibs and a piston filling mechanism. The top of the cap is adorned with a representation of the snow covered top of Europe's highest mountain, the Mont Blanc and the 4810 on the nib represents the height of the mountain, 4810 meters.
The 146 is one of Montblanc's flagship line-up, standing proudly next to the slightly larger 149. It is a superbly proportioned pen, large enough to exude gravitas and yet tapered to remain elegant
This particular model, the LeGrand 146, is a large sized 146 with a 14k smooth medium nib, it has some signs of wear but has been fully serviced and is in overall excellent condition, ready to write.
There are no major imperfections to note, no splits or engravings.
There are marks and indents on the barrel (see photo 9) and surface wear present. But overall a good shiny example which writes beautifully
