This is a 1931 Pelikan T111 Toledo piston filler in 24K gold-plated sleeve with etched pelikans surrounded by fine tooling. This is the original – not one of the modern reproductions! [Martin Lehman, author of the Pelikan book, describes the process of making the binde: the motifs of the body were carved into a relief by using a corrosive method, deep parts were then burnished, distinguished motifs were gold-plated and parts of the line drawings were then re-engraved by hand.] Black hard rubber cap with etched clip (used only on this model) and knurled cap bands (also unique to this model). Amber celluloid barrel. Fine nib. New-old-stock. Mint in original form-fitted box. This pen is thought of as the “holy grail” of vintage Pelikans.
