Montblanc Great Characters JFK 1917 Limited Edition Ballpoint Pen – SEALED – NUMBER 1 / 1917


Out of stock


Thanks for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Great Characters Limited Edition John F. Kennedy 1917 Ballpoint Pen, which comes with its large Montblanc presentation box (including outers) and booklet. The pen remains factory sealed and this is rarest example you could possibly purchase, as it’s number 1 of 1917. We’ve included a few photos from another JFK and then two images of the sealed box.




The Great Characters range was first launched in 2009 and has honoured names including Miles Davis, Andy Warhol and Albert Einstein. In January 2015 the JFK offerings were released and they included both special edition and limited edition pens. This listing is for the absolutely stunning limited edition ballpoint pen.




John F Kennedy requires no introduction and is probably one of the most famous figures in recent history. This pen includes so many nods to both his passions and career – one of his biggest loves was sailing and the surface of the pen evokes the boats rigging. With the red, white and blue colour scheme being a nod toto his time in the US Navy and obviously the US flag. The engraving round the cap ring is taken from his successful 1960 presidential campaign – “a time for greatness” and his iconic initials, JFK, can be found on the clip.




The finishing touch is the snowcap logo being crafted from moon quartz, which elevates the usual look of the resin version to a completely different level. We encounter thousands of pens each year, but there are some which you can’t help but smile at… this is one of them, it’s absolutely fantastic in every way. A substantial pen, which will undoubtedly be a joy to write with or simply tucked away as part of a wider collection.




The important details are as follows…



– 1/1917 Limitation Number



– Factory Sealed Condition




With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
