Antique Typewriters and Pens – Go Together Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

September 10, 2008

Atop my list of unique and thoughtful gifts is a pen given to me by a good friend and a fellow screenwriter and producer. I remember opening the gift and being overjoyed as I recognized immediately that it combined two of my passions – antique typewriters and quality pens.

Tokens & Coins uses authentic vintage Remington, Smith Corona, Underwood and Royal typewriter keys to create the QWERTY.  At some point each of these typewriters has adorned my typewriter collection, making this pen even more precious to me.  The QWERTY comes with your choice of 26 letters in a sterling silver fluted barrel or a black rubberized barrel.

My pen has the letter R and the rubber barrel.  The ballpoint inks smoothly and the pen material and design offers a sturdy grip and a balanced weight.  It’s perfect for long journal writing, meetings, or day-to-day office tasks around LitCentral.  I’ve polished the sterling silver clip, cap and end a few times keeping it as spiffy as the day I received this wonderful gift. The QWERTY will remain in my collection for a long time to come.  Thank you Heather!
