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.
