Still waiting on the Dog Rescue Retro 51 pen but I had to post the Cat pen. These new pens from Retro 51 are outstanding and they glow in the dark. A portion of the price goes to Best Friends Rescue so you need to pick one up. Will post the Dog Rescue when it comes in. I have noticed that the collector price on some of these Retro 51 pens are going through the roof so buy yours now. Add them to your collection.

Here we have four pencils and two pens from Pentel. Starting on the left we have four Pentel P125 pencils followed by a Pentel SR120 and last a green SR305 pen. Both pens are refillable. I have only seen the SR120 in brushed aluminum so there appears not to be a matching pen to go with the blue, green or the brown pencils. The SR305 came in four colors red, blue, brown, and the green.
The pen will use the 02, 03 or the 04mm Ceramicron cartridge. You can also use the MG8 rollerball refills.
Many of these refills have made it to the present day so they can still be found. Add them all to your collection.

Those were the days. All us kids had Rat Fink T-shirts and thoughts of the beach and the hot cars. Now that I am older I just wanted the pen. Rat Fink was created in 1963 so there were 1963 pens made. This one is SN# 0985. These pens are not cheap. There is one on eBay with a small display and he wants around $300.00. I changed out the original grip on this pen for the rubber one.
Ed Big Daddy Roth would be proud of this Rat Fink ACME pen. Add one to your collection.

Lindy did like to put their top of the line pen and pencil sets in nice plastic cases. These were used as give-aways for radio spots and as their executive pen sets. This is my third set. The other gold set the pen did not work and in this one the pencil did not work so I switched. The silver color set the pencil does not work.
This set is fine now so I will put them in the rotation and see how they work 45 years after they were made. Add them all to your collection.

I do own a Monteverde roller ball pen but this story is about a pen case that everybody should own. I have started to see the price increase of many of the retro 51 pens that I own but did not have any where to store them. I have a very cheap pen stand on the does desk but that would not do.
The case is made of some type of fiber board and has wood sides.
Inside are ten soft slots for your finish pens.
So here is where my Retro 51 pens now rest. First eight glow in the dark and the last one is the Space Invaders pen. The case was $30.00 which includes shipping. Add the case and the pens to your collection.

What better way to celebrate the elections of 2016 but with the new 2016 sherpa pens. There are two of them. One to support the Republican party and one to support the Democrat party.
Here are the pens. On the left is the Republican pen and on the right is the Democrat pen. Hillary vs Trump. What a battle. As with all these new Sherpa pens they come with two refills one a Sharpie and one made by sherpa just for the sherpa pen. Add them both to your local elections.

All I did was add some extras to the case to fill in the holes. I have not seen any of the ones I am missing so maybe this is it.
The originals do make a nice collection.
I kow I am missing one in the orginal cliclers but on the ones with a grip I am missing solid colors in the 0.7 and 0.9 sizes.
Add them all to your collection.

I got a good deal on these great BIC F-49 pens. The 48 pens that have never been used. The only problem I had was that some still had ink in them and it leaked out. Washed them all and removed the refills so they are now ready to go. I like this shade of yellow better then the yellow shade used in the F-25s and F-29s. I said ready to go which means that you have to put another refill in to get them to work but with the newer refills and ink you will never skip a beat. Some of these will be in my first give-away in a year and a half. Add them all to your collection and stay tuned.
