Pelikan M805 Stresemann with MB Bordeaux ink bottle

This week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination was easily my new Pelikan Souverän M805 Stresemann Anthracite fountain pen with an extra fine nib and Montblanc Bordeaux ink. I’ve had the pen a week so it still has that new pen smell and glow. MB Bordeaux is my favorite ink so this combination was a no brainer. My other pens are jealous as I’ve been ignoring them for this one.

Poll: The Value of the “W.-Germany” Stamp – The Pelikan’s Perch // My vote is “No” it doesn’t add any value although it does make dating the pen a bit easier. The historical significance does add a big “But” to that no vote and I can see where some might want these pens a bit more than others.
