Pen club members' oldest pens
At our July meeting, members were asked to bring their oldest pen. We had a great turnout and everyone brought an interesting pen to share.
The oldest pen was an 1885 Fairchild Unique owned by Kerry Kemp.
Ted Felton brought several pens, including this beautiful 1919 Eversharp Unique 11SW US Navy edition gold filled pen accompanied by a wonderful folding knife with the Navy emblem on it. Just a spectacular piece.
Below left is a beautiful Waterman #54 in red ripple with flex nib from the mid-20s shown by Perry Kearney. Jim DeLamar's Parker Lucky Curve, below right, dates to 1919-1920.
We don't have photos of the rest, but they included Grayling Hill's 1909 Waterman Ideal "Clip Cap" and a Rexal 1918 Monogram, Sam Highsmith's Parker Jackknife Safety pen, Miranda Grimm's beautiful blue Spors pen, Anthony Grimm's 1940's Conklin, and Nicole Smith's 1920's Liberty BCHR pen.
