The Pelikan 140 was the workhorse that fueled Pelikan's recovery after World War II. The company sold millions of them as upmarket school pens, pens for teachers, clerks, accountants.

During the period 1950-63 they also offered some upmarket versions in attractive colors such as all-black, burgundy, blue, gray and this pen, in forest green.

This is an early example, probably from 1954, though the barrel markings (Export) suggest earlier production.

It's essential to any collection and can serve as a wonderful user. (GSH20).

This pen is also part of a collection of mostly Pelikans that I have been asked to sell by the family of Gilly Hart, who was my first webmaster after my daughter Anna, designer of the site went off to college. Sadly Gilly died in February 2020 at the age of 38.
