Reynolds Super Rocket

In October 1945 Miles Reynolds began selling his first Reynolds pens. The first one was called the International. Most of the metal components were made from war-surplus aluminum. In 1948 he decided to go out of business and walked away with $5 million bucks. He had a few different pens like the Reynolds rocket, Rockette and the Stubby Rocket. The one in the picture was called the Super Rocket and is a very large pen that held plenty of ink however they did have to be returned to the factory to be refilled. His pens never worked very well but he make some fast cash and a name for himself in ball point pen history. Add a Reynolds Rocket to your collection.
