Pelikan - Grand Prix

Nominally these cartridge fountain pens correspond to the model of the youth market fountain pen P459, which came on the market in 2006. Some design elements also correspond to the fountain pen from the Pelikan Set P2000, namely the clip, the screw cap and the trim ring on the barrel end. The printed Pelikan logo is the old one, so the pen was probably manufactured before 2003. Ink feed and nib indicates that the pen was not produced in the Pelikan plants, but was a contract work for export purposes (this Grand Prix pen was also found in Bulgaria).
Whether more different color models exist, is not known.

Pelikan - like Pelikano

At first glance, you might think: ah, a Pelikano. But upon closer inspection you realize that the typical Pelikano engraved clip with 'Pelikano' on it is missing. The cap has a similar design to that of the Pelikano model 4. but instead of the imprint on the clip you can find on the cap edge the engravings 'Pelikan Germany'. And in particular the grip section profile of this pen is identical to the shape of the model 3 Pelikanos, so this pen is believed to have been created around 1973. Perhaps this is even an export model, since it was found in the Netherlands.

Pelikan - Dauerfeder

These two fountain pens from the lower price segment are equipped with permanent nibs (German: Dauerfeder). You are strongly reminded of the fountain pen P120 from the set derived from Pelikan Milan. Deviations from that model are the lack of a decorative ring between the barrel and the grip section, the missing metal crown on the cap end and a small flat at the grip section in front of the nib. Otherwise many parts seem to be from the same moldings. The embossing Pelikan and logo distinguish the otherwise identical flat metal clips.
The fountain pens were found in Bulgaria and Spain.

Pelikan - slim metal fountain pens

These pens have a slim look, and lie well in the hand because of the weight of the metal barrel and the cap, which is a distinctive feature of this Pelikan cartridge pen. The painted barrel, cap sleeve and fittings are available in different colors. Only a golden printed 'Pelikan' on the sleeve of the cap indicates the origin of the writing instrument. The beak clip corresponds exactly to the above-described fountain pen made of stainless steel with plastic ends. Likewise, the grip section with the ink feeds are absolutely identical.
