All I See Is Green

 
I do not remember the last time I saw seven dozen BIC F-25s with the old extended plug on the end all in one place. Later BIC made the plug flush with the end of the barrel and put a hole in the cap. Kids kept putting the cap end in their mouth. There is also a dozen hard to find AF-49 Accountant Fine Point pens mixed with some super hard to find AF-49 Accountant Extra Fine Point BICs. This may be the only place that you can see this many 50 year old green BIC pens that have never been used. A few of the key pens are going to be traded to some other BIC pen collectors from around the world but there will be a future opportunity for some of you readers to get your hands on a 50 year old never used BIC F-25 in green with the orange barrel. I have already pulled the old refill out of some of these pens and they work fine. These are true collector items. Posted by Picasa

  1. Beautiful ! I used to drive my teachers to distraction with my Bic green ink. Black and blue were just too mundane and red was reserved for grading. Green for the win :)

    It was much later that the pastels appeared on the scene . . .

  2. I was surprised that the Accounting Green BICs are so hard to fine. This group is a gold mine.

  3. That is an amazing lot of pens, George. Thanks for the memory of kids who removed the plugs from the ends of BIC pens and chewed on them. :)

  4. I am surprised that Bic doesn't sell their green crystal sicks in the US. Why is that? You can get them from England. Was there something in the ink when the kids put the plugs in their mouths? Did they grow two heads or something? Poison? I would love to know.
    Thanks
