When I think of pens from the 60s I always go back to the orange Lindy. I found that using a Cross orange refill works fine in these old pens. Most of the time I use Pilot refills for the blue, black and red but these do not have orange so Cross it is. Add one to your collection.
There was a day here in the US where these were sold at every stationary store in the country. No more. These are made in France and sold overseas. They are disposable and I had plenty of them. In the 60s they were only in the four basic colors. Things have changed. Add them to your collection.
Here we have my current collection of BIC Fine Point Pens. In most cases we are talking about the original orange fine point BIC. Left side of the case are all US made BICs. Starting at the bottom left and going up we have the Auditors Fine Points followed by the PF Fine Point then the PF Office Property. A note concerning these pens with minor differences. In most cases there will be four pens to each different wording on the side of the BIC. One per color. This makes the collection endless. Next up are the PF-49 Deluxe Fine Point Pens followed by the PF-39s and a few singles like the BIC School Pen Fine. We now have the F-25s and the F-29s. These are the most common of the old orange fine point pens. There are still many orange and yellow BICs out there that I don't have but since no one seems to know what was made and when we have to continue the search. Starting at the bottom right and going up we finish the F-29s followed by the rare F-39. Only one I have every seen. Now we start with the orange BICs made overseas. We start with China then Mexico, France, and last Canada. Some of the French BICs are also Extra fine point. All the BICs are refillable so you can continue to use these great pens. Add all these great BICs to your collection.
This is just an update on my BIC collection. I added three new BICs to this case. Top row I added a dark blue barrel 4 way with a charm on the top and then to the far right I added an all black 4 way. Bottom row I added a green metallic 2 way to the collection. There is no end to the number of BICs out there. Add them all to your collection.
Rad and Hungry are stationary hunters that go out and get notebooks, pens, pencils and more from different countries around the world. They do the traveling so all you have to do is look and get what you like. Well here I did some trading and look what I got. Two notebooks, one on the left appears to be from Turkey, the other from Denmark. Both have very nice paper. Three yellow BICs that look just like the ones made in France but these are made in China. Top three clear BICs have "BIC NS Fine France Design Easy Glide" printed on the side. These also are made in China. Last are three BU1s and they are made in Vietnam. Want to thank the Rad and Hungry crew for making this a very fun trade. Add all this great stuff to your collection and visit the Rad and Hungry website at www.radandhungry.com. Great Stuff.
I have not been adding as many displays as I did at one time but I could not pass on this one. Who did not want a nice All-Rite pen and pencil set For Christmas. These are very sharp looking pens and pencils. The pencil is a 0.9mm size but the refill for the pen is not a common type so to get one working may take some time.
These are all brand new with their nice plastic box. Add them to your collection.
