    My old fave in school. Until about 1972 the quality was good. You have a good old one.

      Thank you. I have a small but growing collection of “college bookstore” imprinted School Pens. They’re simple, reliable, and solid writers.

    Still using mine, both purchased in the school store, 1970, still dependable and compact. I think they were a dollar each with replacement cartridges, I could never part with them.

      So cool that you’re still using the pens you bought. I know a dollar was worth a lot more back then, but to me, these pens are the definition of economical: a quality item at a reasonable price that performs well for years.

      Thanks for stopping by!

        Absolutely, they hold fond memories of all the composition assignments I had, and the first stories I wrote for my own amusement. I treasure them…thanks for posting this.
