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.

These new Field Notes look great. On the back of the card is a paper cardboard American Space Flight Crew Capsule. I went and picked up two sets.
Added these very nice Pentel Solar Pop Fluorescent gel pens. I also added another Papermate Ops N Pops pen. This makes 37 pens. 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.

One of the harder Pentel pencils to find. The Pentel PG15.
Here we have the PG1505 with the knurled grip in the back and the older PG15 out front.
Nice grip but smooth compared to the newer PG1505. If you can find it add one to your collection.

It has been some time since I posted a nice counter top display like this one. A 1958 Scripto Satellite Pen display complete. This one came out during the beginning of the space race. Cardboard shows some wear but still in good condition. Been looking for this one for some time. I have not been able to get a current refill to fit in this model pen. Add one to your collection.

Here we have a very nice blue Pentel SG45. Don't see many of these colors around. A 0.5mm pencil that works real good in the pocket. This one has the green eraser with the needle for clearing. Add one to your Pentel collection.

Here is my newest Desk set by Parker. This has a real retro look and I would think it is from the 50s or early 60s.
The set has some weight to it.
Not a lot of room on my desk since I already have three Pentel desk sets plus a few smaller ones. This one will have a place at the desk. Add one to your desk.

Never saw one before. I am guessing that this is the high end of the Skilcraft pen line. Skilcraft pens are used in all levels of the US Government and all branches of the Military. Assembled by the Industries of the Blind Inc. in Greensboro NC 27403. Add one to your collection.

It has been a while since I received any pencils from Germ. Some of you may remember Germ from Pencils 11? On the top we have a Pentel 5 with the red bottom. Hard to come by. Next is a PQ11 350 side clicker. Another hard to find pencil.
Here we have the refill pack for my Pentel Injecto P154 and the plastic Q604 Popnpop Injecto. This refill pack is very hard to find. Add all of these to your collection and THANK YOU Germ.

This should be the complete camouflage collection of Parker Vector Pens. The first two have some history with me. I took the sand camouflage pen to Desert Storm in 1989. The green camouflage I have had for many years and was with me for most of the 11 years I spent in Germany. The two new ones are on the right. Camo with no color and Camo with no green. I think this is all of them.
All are rollerball and are good all around pens. Parker refills have always been reliable. Add them all to your collection.

Here we have some great examples of Scripto advertising pencils. The blue ME-1 and the pearl version of the M800 pencil were already in the collection. What I have added was the green and red version of the M800s so I will have one of each color. These pencils were from the 40s and 50s. You can see the phone number with only four digits on the side of the black pencil. All use the 1.1mm Scripto lead and all of these pencils work fine. There are erasers under the caps but are not usable. Add these great pencils to your collection.
