Pelikan 300

The Pelikan 300 is a mixture of the models 400 and 140. In length it is equal to the Pelikan 400, the cap head and the filling knob is in the style of the Pelikan 140. A 300 can be rebuild using parts from a Pelikan 140 and a 400. Original Pelikan 300s have the model name engraved on the cap ring and on the barrel end. They were mainly produced for export, and so most models have EXPORT engraved on the barrel end, too.

Gimborn 150 Master

The Gimborn 150 fountain pen was almost identical to the model Pelikan 300. Only the clip and the missing cap logo were different from the Pelikan version. The name Gimborn is found on the nib. A mechanical pencil was offered, too; this was the Gimborn 175 (design of the Pelikan 350). About 5 years later the black model was extended by three additional color varieties and other models.
