Right now this is our hottest model and among the common 400s the hardest to find.

PE3500: 1954 Pelikan 400 in tortoise. This has strong brown accents. The capband shows some wear and brassing. The logo style nib is an EF with moderate flex. $295

PE3501: 1954 Pelikan 400 in tortoise. This has moderate brown and red effects on a light background. The capband show moderate brassing. The nib is a moderately flexible fine. $275 SOLD

PE3662: 1953 Pelikan 400 in tortoise. This one has dramatic brown elements on a light tortoise ground. There is some capband wear and the Fine nib looks more like a medium stub to me. $295 SOLD

PE3663: 1954 Pelikan 400 in tortoise. This one has even, modulated dark and light brown marbling. The cap has an owner imprint that can be tucked under the clip if you wish. The logo style nib is an EF with moderate flex. $275

PE3664: 954 Pelikan 400 in tortoise. This pen has a uniform light brown marbling with dark highlights. The logo style nib is unmarked but looks like an OF with moderate flex. $305
