Papermate And Scripto Pens

Top row are all Papermate Pens with the 10 Ops N Pops pens on the top left. Bottom row starts with Papermates on the left side and Scriptos on the right.  The Scriptos, starting with the blue two tone pen in the middle of the bottom row are all called T260 Wordmaster Pens. Not counting the two regular Wordmasters what we have are 12 never before seen pens. One of the black bottom, white top with black dots is the pen that I already had. My reference books list this pen as made by Scripto and called a Satellite from 1958. Maybe but the pen does not look like any Satellite in my collection of pens or ads. This lot was advertised as being from a stationary store closing in the mid 60s.I believe these pens were made in the late 60s and were Scriptos attempt to go up against the Papermate Ops N Pops. The Papermate is the better pen but these Scriptos are like no other Scripto I have ever seen. Some have a little rust but all can be made to work. I have three working now. I will be giving a separate case to Papermate and Scripto very soon. Add them all to your collection.

  2. Been collecting for many years. Papermate Ops N Pops pen by papermate was one of the best ball points ever made.

  3. The scriptos in the bottom right side of case now have a real name. On cards they were called Scripto Action Pen. The card also has number T229 on it. 220 for the pen and you add a 9 if it is carded.
