Pelikan - 4X1E - Three-color ballpoint pen and propelling pencil in one - 1970 - New and unused - Original box
Germany - 1970-1979 - As new - unused

I am selling this really strange but fun Pelikan three-color ballpoint pen from the seventies. What makes this pen special is the gravity based selector, by keeping the color of your choice upwards and then pressing the button then that color's filling comes out. This mechanism is already uncommon however this pen uses the fourth slot for a propelling pencil, whenever the pencil is slected you can actually turn the button to push the pencil lead out. I have seen quite a few odd pens but never something like this.

The pen is new and unused, since the ink fillings were partly dried up I had them replaced with new ones. The selector mechanism works smoothly. The pen writes perfectly of course and it comes delivered in the original box and papers.

This auction is started without a reserve price, please examine the photos before bidding.
