Instructions

  1. 1

    Compare the logo on the outside of the pen with the Montblanc logo from the website (see Resources). Look closely at the logo for font and design, to match it to the Montblanc brand. Check to be sure the logo appears in the same places on the pen and the Montblanc image from the website; the tip of the pen nib, as well as the top of the cap and the Montblanc name encircling the base of the pen cap are good starting places for immediate identification.

  2. 2

    Check the pen clip for a serial number, as a Montblanc Meisterstuck pen comes with its own identifying number for reference. First ensure that this number is present, next compare this serial number with the records of pen purchases by contacting a Montblanc retailer. Ask the Montblanc company to match up the serial number of the pen with the records held by the Montblanc company.

  3. 3

    Note varieties of colour and metals. Look online at the different options available; some common combinations include black resin with gold or platinum, as well as solid precious metal pens in either gold, white metals or including diamonds.

  4. 4

    Visit a local Montblanc store or jeweller in person to authenticate the pen. The variety of colours and special edition styles that have been made is not immediately available online; only a professional can tell for sure if a pen was forged, if it was specially commissioned, or was a limited edition rather than a forgery.
