Pelikan M450 Tortoise Shell Fountain Pen
This pen has been lovingly used. It comes complete with box and papers. It is equipped with an 18k Medium nib.
This model, released in 2004 and discontinued by 2009, is distinguished by the piston knob and cap being done in vermeil, a process of placing a thin layer of gold over sterling silver which provides increased durability. Rather than brown, the barrel is more of a honey green tortoise pattern. There are no trim rings at the piston knob but there is one on the section. The crown cap top is painted with a single chick logo. The nib is two-tone 18C-750 gold and the barrel is translucent to allow for viewing of the ink level.
