The No. 6 is the biggest size for Octagonal models (#8 size octagonal has never been produced). This one is the short version of No.6 (#6 Kurz). This is a scarce reference itself but the added value of the specimen here offered for sale is the spectacular silver clip depicting the whole mountain range and the summit of Montblanc. A similar clip has been found more than 20 years ago in France for a MB Safety #12. As far as I know this is the first time that a clip like this is applied on a #6 sized safety pen. This signature clip was produced for the French market only in the second half of 1920’s (French hallmarks). It comes with a wonderfully responsive Montblanc 18 Carat #6 Medium (M) nib The pen works properly (new cork), the restoration process was carried out by Dr. Osman Sümer whom i should like to thank warmly for his collaboration. A very important model in near mint condition. For more details about MB Octagonal Safety fillers fountain pen cfr. J. Rösler The Montblanc Diary & Collector’s Guide, p. 29, where a similar #6 kurz is depicted (without the above mentioned distinctive clip).
