These are all current Pentel Clicks and I think I have them all. Left are the 0.5mm then 0.7mm. The last orange one on the right starts the 0.9mm pencils.
On the right are the remaining 0.9mms. The eight pencils on the left that look like Pentel P200s are in fact fake ones.
The green pencil on the top is a new pencil called a Quick Click PD217. As you can see the eraser clicks up and down with the green button on the side. Add all these great pencils except the fake ones to your collection.

Here we have a very nice Pentel Salesman case. The case did not come with and pens or pencils but I have a few around the supply room that need a home. The case is a leather or leather type material and all the loops are in good shape. More room at the bottom both sides for other Pentel items like an eraser.
I added my GraphGear 1000s and a Gold color PX7-21 on the left side. On the right are two R-4s, a R-7 with matching SG-75 0.5mm pencil. Then a have a RC30 Clic Roller with matching pencil (PC355). Add all these great Pentels to your collection.

I need a place for my Casio M800 Calculator collection so I found this eight slot Zippo lighter case. I thought that the Zippos were bigger, they are not. Out with the sharp knife and I started cutting. Made a mess behind the calculators.
Here on the right are the two M810 Calculators. The on switch is on the left side. They also had the % key, the 800s did not. I like the one from Radio Shack.
Here are two of the M800s. as you can see the one on the left has the clear screen while all the rest have the yellow-filtered. The yellow was used to protect the led from harmful rays. The one on the right has a molled-golden finish.
They made five different finishes and I only have two. I will be looking for the others.
Add all these great calculators to your collection.

I believe I have posted these new additions to the blog but people seem interested in Hallmark pens so here they are again. The first one on the left is a walnut with gold trim. Next is a light wood and I do not know the type. Same with the next two. The last one on the right has a very nice wood grain but I do not know the wood type.
Anybody know what type wood let me know. Add these great pens to you collection.

Picked this up used but it is in great shape plus the set has a pencil that was not in my collection. The set included a PG4 04mm which I did not have, a PMG 03mm, PG5 05mm, and a PG7 07mm pencil.
The PG4 goes for about $85.00 on Ebay. I got the whole set for $60.00. Add this set to your collection.

Had to add another one to the collection. This should make maybe 15 of these great pencils. Made to compete with the Scripto K780 these pencils had a much clearer Vue to the inter workings of the pencil. Used 1.1mm lead just like the k780 but had a removable pocket clip. Also used the same eraser.
These pencils came in six clear colors. Wearever also had solid colors like the Scripto K770s. Will post the complete collection soon. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

Here is a never used Scripto Counter Top display from the 90s. This display not only has all the pencils but also came with another complete set of pencils. Don't know the model number of these pencils. They are not the Scripto P200, P650 or the P850. Will have to do more research. Add this display to your collection.

Plenty of interest in the Lindy Pens so lets take another look. I have found no larger collections.
These were called Shorty's. The even smaller pens were called Short Shorty's.
Never intended to be seen by the public. Somebody placed these pens on the printing machine and this is what happens.
I have some working Lindy pens on hand for $7.00 each. I use Pilot refills. Blue and red and maybe some black. The clear black and blue Lindy's were an attempt to compete with BIC. It did not work. The metal clip and gold or silver print on the side kept the Lindy from getting the cost down to 19 cents. Add all these great pens to your collection.

I have been collecting Scripto pen and pencils for over 40 years. I have never seen one of these. I am sure from the 60s and uses the same basic Scripto pen that was used for the Scripto Action Pen. Anybody have one I would love to buy it. Add one to your collection.

Here is a Pentel pencil that is no longer being made. I have a few in my collection but it has not been one of my favorite Pentels. In the 1982 Pentel Catalog they show a black P225 with a blue P227 and a yellow P229. It appears that the P227 and P229 were not kept in the line up and are very hard to find.
Now I find that the P225 came in more then one color. Here is the red pencil. The standard black P225 is very popular among collectors but I like the colors. I am still looking for the P227 and the P229. Add them all to your collection.

Here we go with 31 Retro 51 pens that glow in the dark. I may have them all.
Don't remember all the names but the most resent is the one called System on the right. Next to that is the Pen World Retro. Prices are going through the roof on Retro 51 pens. Collectors are grabbing them up. Glow in the dark Retro 51 pens have been very popular. The New York city pen in the middle jumped from $45.00 to over $400.00 within a few weeks of delivery.
They do give off a nice glow. Add them all to your collection.
Not going in a lot of detail except that this fountain pen was on sale at Levengers. I think $39.00. It writes great and is nice and strong. I am sure it was on sale because of the color but since I like brown I bought it. Uses small international refills or from a bottle. Add one to your collection.

Here they are. Starting on the left are the older GG 1000 0.7mm pencil and ball point pen. If you look close you will see that they have the old pocket clip. Pentel had some problems so they changed the clip. Next is the 0.9 and 0.4 GG 1000. Then we have the 0.5 pencil and ball point pen. They are not making the ball point pen version anymore. Next are the new black and silver, all red, all blue and all black GG 1000. Last is the gold version of the GraphGear 1000 and the matching EnerGels in gold, red and blue. Last we have two R-4s. All these new GG 1000s can be matched up with old and new Pentel pens.
Better look at the different clips. The ball point pens are very rare.
These new GraphGears are nice looking pencils.
