A new addition to a small but growing collection

As luck would have it, I found this RB BNIB at my boutique. No fountain pens of this LE left, but this RB will make a great daily at the office and on the road.

Enjoy! I like the Montblanc star (MOP??) the most.
Looks very good with a subtle glance.

Great pen. I have the othe JFK RB. Little more low key.

My only gripe and the reason I rarely use the pen is because the cap does not post and that makes the balance seem off and the barrel too short.

Thanks, guys! I think the barrel is shorter than others, but I havenít found it to be problematic yet.

What a beauty! I am definitely a fan of the red, white and blue series. The colors are magnificent.

I picked up the Harvard edition JFK BP almost 2 months ago, and it's been my daily driver, along side my new Blue Hour BP. I am new to the space, and have acquired a few pieces over a short period time, and I am enjoying learning more and more.

Thanks, Gentlemen!

The details and thought put into both pens are incredible. The Great Characters line from MB is a lot of fun.
