On the 25th of May, 1950, the model 400 was presented. The first fountain pen in this series had a friction fit nib (until August 1950), followed by screw in nibs as used in the previous models Pelikan 100 and 100N.
From 15th of June, 1951 colored cap crowns were available, so it was easy to know what color of ink was used (even unusual colors such as purple and white were known).
From 27th of November, 1953, transparent plastic seal instead of black seals were used.
Before 1954 the cap band was without engraving, from 1954 onwards it was engraved with Pelikan 400.
As of December 1954, the nib design with the Pelikan logo was introduced. Previously, the imprint was Pelikan 585.
In 1956, the Pelikan 400 was discontinued and the 400N model was introduced. N is for New.
