I continue to sort trays of near modern and modern pens recently acquired. I seek help with one Pelikan and two small-name pens.

1) Slot 8: Pelikan.. Seems bit short for an M-200 (and has no model number on it). Piston fill. Plated nib.

2) Slot 6: a Tuyner (?) Rotex with gold-plate nib. Piston fill. Seems well made. I've never seen one.

3) Slot 7: Cleo Skribent. 18k nib. Very stylish pen. Converter filler.

Any help appreciated.

Dear David,
The Super Rotax R89 in slot 6 was a school pen available in the early 1970s. I remember using them and they were considered a step up from the Heros of the time. In those days they were sold in bookstores and sundry shops in Singapore.

There was another model in black, also a piston filler, just called Rotax (can't remember the model number) that was cigar shaped.

Rotax was distributed by Mutschler GmbH which also sold Reform pens. It is believed that Rotax was designed by the Excelsior Fountain Pen Company, a subsidary of Montblanc.

The Super Rotax was available in 4 colours, dark grey, sky blue, burgundy and green and came in gold cardboard display boxes. Mine are shown below, a reminder of my school days.
