Our First Giveaway Of The Year

Time for a giveaway. Starting on the left we have a Pentel brushed aluminium SR-10-03A Ceramicron pen with two refills. This is a discontinued item from Pentel. Many of you like the fine point and this refillable pen has it. From the 80s. Next is a Scripto K780 pencil from my box of pencils returned to me from Mad Men.  Brand new with a soft eraser. Next is a BIC Citation Ball Point Pen. Should still work fine. Last is a Hero 616 Doctor which is a copy of a Parker 51. There will be a few more items in the bag and for the first time we are going to open this giveaway up to everybody. All you need to do is sign on as a follower and leave a comment. I will pick the winner on 7 Sept 2014 close of business.

Top row in the center is the forest green Jotter and top right is a cream colored Jotter from Mad Men. Next post I will start showing what was returned to me from the great people at Mad Men since filming is now over. Add all these Jotters to your collection.

New Pentel PSD5 Pencil

 It took some time to get my hands on a Pentel PSD5 Pencil and here it is. This one was used and was missing a cap over the eraser and it does not work without the cap. I contact Ginger Goode who is the Consumer Quality Assurance Manager at Pentel of America and she found me the part. What a great pencil and a big thanks to Ginger. The pencil is listed in my 1985 Pentel Catalog so the pencil has been around at least that long.

Here we have both of my favorite vanishing point pencils. Top one is the Pilot H-2005 and on the bottom is the Pentel PSD5. I don't know who was first but there have been plenty of variations of this Pilot and there has only been one Pentel. Both are great pencils and highly collectible. Add them both to your collection.

Unisonic Caclulators

Unisonic always was a good bet when it came to calculators for school and work. I would buy them at my local K-Mart store. Of all the Unisonic calculators and there were many, I always liked the small 940. I had a 940 with me all during my career in the military.Top row are the 940s. First one is a 940, than a 940 A and a 940B. Variations are in the key layout. All three have green LED numbers. Bottom row are the 911, 911L and the 931. The 911 has green LED display and the 911L has a red display. The 931 also has a green LED display. 911 and the 931 have the square root key. These are all great calculators from the 70s. They were made in both Japan and Taiwan. Add them all to your collection.
