Pelikan is known for releasing multiple Special Edition versions of their pens each year!
What’s the difference between Special Edition and Limited Edition fountain pens?
Both types have a limited run. The difference is that we know how many pieces are going to be produced with a Limited Edition pen, these are also usually numbered. Special editions are not limited by their production number but instead by their production time. Usually they are produced for a year in unknown quantity. They are not numbered but as with limited edition pens once production ceases they will no longer be made again.
