1931 Pelikan 100 with a striped jade binde. The binde is the forerunner to the green marbled, but is a deep jade, the pattern made from laminated strips of marbled celluloid. This pen, with a stub nib somewhere between medium and broad, is flawless. The gold trim shows just a bit of brassing, the turning knob is strong. Captop imprints are average. It comes in the original export box with instructions in French. $1200.00. For the advanced collector this is the chance of a lifetime.
