Here we have two examples of a one of the best pens ever made. These Sheaffer Ball Point Pens are unique because it may have been the only period where Sheaffer called these pens the People's Pen. From 1971 to 1974 time frame. Bright colors were the standard in the early 70s. I had sent some of these Sheaffers to Mad Men because this pen has been around since the mid 60s. I do not remember what was going on for the introduction of the phase People's Pen. Many times pens made in the US during the 40s up through the early 70s reflected what was going on in our country and the world. The People's Pen was one of them. Add them all to your collection.
