Sheaffer Friday it was! The above Jackie Gleason Sheaffer Advertisement is from the Collection (along with the Gold Snorkel) of Frank Crescioni, who gave a video presentation on the Sheaffer Pen Company 1953 to today. Thank you, Frank, for all of the information and work that went into putting this together.

After the video and slide show, the Members shared their recent finds and Sheaffer Collections.

Here are a few photos of these Collections.

Please bring your favorite Sheaffer pens to show and discuss as well.    Additionally, Frank will have hard copies of our Newsletter which includes numerous articles, including ones on Frank Dubiel, and Pioneer Pens.

August Meeting Recap

The August Meeting was well attended and we thank Barry for the fine refreshments.  The Meeting Theme was Pens that are ” A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”.  This could mean pens that were replicas of famous pens, or items that look like pens, but really are not..

A few samplings ~

A European Waterman that uses the same material as the Parker Golden Web – a beautiful pen that sparked much discussion…
