Just added four new old Papermate 98 Pens to the collection. We have the two plastic button pens on the left. Button is just above the pocket clip. The rest all have the metal button. These all work and are in great condition for pens from the 50s and 60s. I like the Holiday better only because the clic mechanism just holds up better. The Name 98 is in fact the price of the pen. At the time Papermate pens were made in Salinas, Culver City, California and in Puerto Rico. Culver City is also where Lindy pens were made. By 1957 Papermate had sold 40 million 98 pens. By 1970 they had sold 100 million 98 pens. Papermate is one of my favorite Pen Companies. The colors speak of the 50s and early 60s. Add these great pens to your collection.

I was lucky enough to get some red and blue refills that work. Only the black are made today.

My first trip to Germany in 1972 I ended up in a Army unit called 3/84 Pershing. In the picture you see a unit level award that I was given. You would pin this 3" badge to your uniform pocket. The Pershing missile along with the Soviet SS20 are both long gone.
There is a piece of metal that is on the top of this pen that was made from the defused US Pershing and Soviet SS20 missiles. What a great looking Parker Duofold pen.
Here is a Parker Insignia that has a small piece of defused missile on the pocket clip. Proceeds made from this pen went to the World Disaster Relief Fund to help those affected by war. These pens came out in 1991. Add them all to your collection.

While I have had these pens in my collection for years I have not had a complete set like this. I call them M-10s because these are being made overseas and I have seen this number on the pens. I remember when you could buy them in the USA but these never seem to catch on. Add them to your collection.
