Here some time back I was asked if I had any BIC pens for sale or BIC starter sets of US made BIC pens. Answer now is I do. Here we have F25 Fine Point pens and the AF-49 Accountant pen by BIC. As you can see from the picture many of these pens have the extended plug and the cap with no hole. Both safety issues that were later corrected by BIC. Collectors always want the ones with extened plugs. I chewed on plenty of those.
Here we have a few BIC Cristals with the extended plug. Don't have many of those.
Here we have a few layed out as sets. AF-49 black, AF-49 blue with extended plug, AF-59 blue, BIC Cristal, and Yellow Fine Point blue or black with extend plug.

Nice selection of late 50s and very early 60s pens with one pen and pencil set. Sheaffers on the left then Papermates and on the bottom are Scriptos. The hardest to get to work are the Scriptos. Two identical pens and the refills will not work in one of them. The movie is called "Flock of Four". Add all these great old pens to your collection.

Once n a while I run across a very nice vintage pen and pencil set. Here we have a H1505 Pilot 0.5mm pencil and the matching ball point pen. Pen uses standard Pilot pen refills. Don't know the age of the set but the pencil still has the old eraser with the needle in the bottom for clearing broken lead.
The set does not appear to have been used and I picked it up for less then $20.00. Add this set to your collection.

Here we have a older version of a S59 but with a red ribbed grip.
Here we have a new Pentel Clic Roller. The top gold pen is a RC250 and the white with black stripes is a RC26. The Gold RC 250 is one I have never seen before. Pentel does not make the refills anymore but there are still many users and collectors of these great pens. I lost the email from a collector who had made a refill but I don't have that info anymore. Add these great pens and pencils to your collection.

Little over a month ago I got a call abut another movie. This one will take place in the 60s. This was the second movie this year. Sheaffers, Parkers, Papermates across the top. Lindy and Scripto on the bottom.
BIC pens. This time the pens are being rented by the movie company. Replacement cost on some of the old ball points is getting out of hand. I try and keep a good stock of pens and pencils on hand at all times. Many of the refills dry up so I am always buying replacements. Add them all to your collection.
