A few weeks ago I was contacted by the Property Master for the AMC TV show "Mad Men".They wanted some older working pens. I put together these ten pens as a start. They have already requested more. All are required to work and they do. Pictured are four Sheaffers, three Papermates and three Scripto. The scriptos are the hardest to get to work and the cheapest. If we were talking about the early 70s the scriptos would not be a problem but scripto pens from the early 60s and late 50s are harder to deal with. If you lay out five of the same scriptos the replacement refills may not all be the same size. I use Fisher brand refills because you can cut them off for the right size but even that sometimes does not work. This has been big news around the supply room and I do appreciate that people are reading the blog. We are also looking forward to seeing our pens on TV.
