Tortoise Pelikan 100N & 101N
Buy This Pen  

These are arguably the most beautiful of the pre-World War II Pelikans. The image below offers a representative sample of pens on offer. We have a changing cast of characters, so feel free to inquire.

PE3093: 1938 Pelikan 101N in tortoise and red hard rubber. This is quite a lovely pen, except for the poor color match between the cap and barrel. Otherwise excellent condition. The nib is a superb OB with double incised script. A fine pen to use and as part of an emerging Pelikan collection. $950.00 SOLD

PE3094: 1939 Pelikan 101N in tortoise and red hard rubber. This one is a fine user, in good condition and pre-stained, so you do not have to worry about use or abuse. The pen has one interesting anomaly, a straight hard rubber section. I have seen these before with the same sections, so it might or might not be a replacement. I wouldn’t want to say. The nib is a 14 Karat double incised script style in medium to fine. A curious pen. $800.00 SOLD

PE2757: 1948 Pelikan 101N in tortoise. This is an early postwar 101N. This is a very clean pen with good color, no staining to speak of and a very good color match between cap and barrel. This pen 95th percentile, at least. The nib is an incised script medium 14 Karat 585 with light flex. $1200 SOLD

PE2758: 1938 Pelikan 100N , second year, in tortoise with crisp red hard rubber cap and mechanism. These pens are around a lot, but not usually in this kind of condition, which is flawless. The binde is very light and clear with dark color accents and a hint of red. The nib is a 585 14 Karat plain script in medium to broad with superb flex. $1400

PE2555: 1937 Pelikan 100N in tortoise and red hard rubber. A very clean first year pen in excellent used condition showing less than expected wear. The nib is a double incised script 14 Karat in fine with moderate flex, other options are possible. $1400 SOLD

PE2126: This pen is a clean, late Pelikan 101N in tortoise. The pen has excellent light color with lots or brown and red highlights. The cap and barrel match almost perfectly. The pen has an unusual captop imprint "Pelikan 100N Gunther Wagner Germany." It sports a plain script Pelikan 585 14 Karat fine nib with loads of flexibility. The pen's only flaws are two to three deepish scratches at the back of the cap, not horribly noticeable, but there. This is an excellent user or a start of a tortoise collection $1000.00 SOLD

PE2254: this pen has cap issues (lip cracks that have been stabilized) and an interesting clear replacement barrel. A fine user grade pen with a plain script broad stub nib with superb flex. $650.00 SOLD
