Don't have a value for them yet.
A good thing is that there are no need to send the pen. Barrels are done to fit all Pelikan 100 N. All needed is to screw the nib unit and the filling system, and pen is ready.
Here you can see some samples of cellulose acetate used to make the Pelikan 100 N customization

Inicial order for this model was made on 1935 and delivered on 1936 for the portuguese market.
Two versions of the model exist.
First one have EMEGÊ imprinted on the cap top with the Pelikan imprint also, and a darker tortoise sleeve, the second version of the model have the Emegê imprinted on the cap side and not on the cap top and a ligther tortoise pattern closer to mother-of-pearl.
On the enginiering this model is closer to the Pelikan 100 than to the Pelikan 100N:
1. shaft threads are the same like the 100;
2. turning knob like the 100, with a longer midle part than the 100N,but no kurling and streamlined;
3. a arrow is stamped on the turning knob like the 100;
4. on the first pens a brass colar can be found on the back part of the barrel, beneth the sleeve;
Just for example.
There was not a local production and all the Pelikan pens sent to the portuguese market were manufactured in Germany.
This is the big size Pelikan from the 30's and there is not an explanation for why this model was ment only for the portuguese market, further investigation must be done.
