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 - like Primapenna

There are writing sets on the foreign market, whose pens corresponds to the shape of the Primapenna of the 1970s. Notwithstanding, the brand name Primapenna was replaced by the word Pelikan on the clip. The colors of these pens (Metallic Green from the Netherlands, Red Orange from Italy) can not be found in the Primapenna of this time. It was most certainly also produced by Merz & Krell, who had been producing the Primapenna for Pelikan Milan during this time.

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.

Pelikan - P511

Around the year 2000, these pens were sold by Pelikan Milan. The rather heavy writing instrument has a painted metal barrel and metal cap. The pen was most likely produced by the company Mutschler in Heidelberg. The elaborate painting work points to the company Dummert in Pforzheim, who has carried out this work for Mutschler.

It is possible that more color variants of this model have been created.
