Scripto Action Pens And Pencils

Early 70s I would think. You had to be cool to have one of these fine sets. We have the yellow/orange T220 with a Wordpicker highlighter. Then we have the Black T220 ball point with a Wordpicker. Last we have a Scripto Thin Line 49 pencil. These use 0.9mm lead. All these are great items to collect but I think you should open them up and use them. The T220 ball point pen has always been one of my favorite pens and refills are easy to fine. Nothing like using a 40 year pen or pencil. Add them all to your collection.

American Walnut Desk Organizer

Here we have a very nice walnut desk organizer. It measures 10 1/2" by 6 1/2" and is about a inch deep. I am told from the 70s.

You open the lid and you have a slot for an eraser, below that post-it tabs that are refilled from the back of the case. Then a Rhodia small bloc pad, Post-it notes, a slot for paperclips and at the bottom a slot for a pen. I have placed this Desk Organizer on my desk and it works fine. Add one to your collection.

New Pens

Her are two new pens in the Supply Room. Top pen is a Conklin Herringbone ball point pen. Most places I have seen this pen for sale it is listed for about $85.00. I bid using ebay and got it for $16.00. The second pen is a Monteverde Regatta in blue and white acrylic. I have seen this pen for $$85.00 and I got it for $22.50. It does pay to shop around. Both use Parker refills so with the different refills available you are sure to find one that works for you. Add them to your collection.

Parker Vector Rollerball Pens

Parker Vector pens have been around for a while and I am sure we have all had a Vector rollerball or a fountain pen at one time or another. This is a some type of rollerball prototype set from around 1986. There is only one pen which has a blue top and blue at the very bottom of the pen yet there are three other caps in red, black and green. Nice set for my collection add one to yours.

New 5-47 Scripto Pencil

When I stop trying to find any new Scripto Pencils for the collection I find one anyway. The top pencil is a Scripto 4-47 pencil from the 40s that I have had for some time.  You can find good examples on eBay and other places and one should be in your collection. They use the standard 1.1mm lead which is also easy to fine. Now we come to the bottom pencil. A Scripto  5-47 1.1mm pencil. This pencil is in great shape and has been moved to the daily EDC group along with one of my new Pentel Sharplet -5. This pencil with eraser is 6" long while the 4-47 is only 5" long., These pencils are all aluminum and work fine. When you get one of these old pencils I recommend that you do not use the erasers. To many other good erasers out there but if you must BIC pencil erasers sometimes work. Go add a Scripto 5-47 to your collection.

New Pencils

Time to catch up on my new pencils. On the left is a very nice set of four Pentel Sharplet-5 A125T pencils. Don't know if these are new or not but they are very nice pencils that will see some use. Next is a Pentel Mark Sheet Sharp1.3 Am13. This one came from JetPens. Next is another one from JetPens a Orenz 0.2mm PP502. This one is only for the collection because it is just to small a lead size for me to use. Last is another JetPens pencil. A Dr. Grip 0.9mm Shaker pencil. Like that dark red color. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

My BIC 4 and 2 Collection

I said I would post the BIC set so far which includes the new orange BIC with rubber grip so here they are. There appears to be no end to this and I along with other collectors think  BIC has done an outstanding job with their 4 and 2 way BICs. They just need to start selling them in the US. I am getting more of the orange BICs so I may be giving some away. Add all these pens to your collection.
