This pen is in excellent condition despite its age. It has wear and tear due to normal use with no visible damage. The pen has no cracks or deep scratches, but the ink cartridge is empty and it needs a replacement. The Montblanc No.2918 utilizes a push-button mechanism and will post with a case, but with no new ink cartridge, or original paperwork. Please refer to the available photos for visual inspection of this beautiful vintage ballpoint pen.
