History of Pelikan M800/ M805 Demonstrator:
2008 – Plain and etched versions of the M800 Demonstrator are released featuring gold plated trim. The pens are labeled in both English and Spanish. Erroneous examples of the Spanish version are created, inadvertently resulting in a rarity.
2012 – A likely prototype variant of an M800 Demonstrator with etchings written in the German language and previously found at a pen show was sold at auction.
2015 – Plain and etched versions of the M805 Demonstrator are released featuring palladium plated trim. This model lacks the cut away on the connector and the attributes are labeled in English only.
2020 – An etched version of the M800 Demonstrator limited to 1000 models is released in China with labels in both simplified and traditional Chinese. This model also lacks the cut away on the connector.
The pen comes with unique packaging with an inner sleeve housing a green book with gold lettering along the spine and the company logo on the front. The book opens to reveal a recess within which the pen resides. A small green manual completes the package.
