Another Old Papermate

Posted by Picasa
Here we have four examples of the Papermate Contour Pen. The newest addition to the Supply Room is the one on the right. The Papermate Zodiac which was made from about 1970 to 1974. I was overseas during that time and completely missed these pens. There were 12 different pens, one for each sign and each had its own color. I have the Virgo. The first I knew about these pens was when I found these two magazine ads on the right. Last month one of the pens showed up on eBay. They are curently selling for about $25.00. Original prize was about $1.50. They are not as nice as the Ops N Pops which has the metal tip as you can see on the yellow one in the picture. I would think that a complete set of 12 would be something to see and I hope I see them someday down in the supply room. I only have 11 more to find. Add them all to your collection.

  1. Still collecting? I love these pens and had my own “Aries” as a ten year old.
