No-Name Desk Pen


No Name Desk Pen

Color: Gold & Black
Material: Plated brass & resin
Filler: Lever
Date c. 1960s
Nib: GP Steek M
Working? Yes

This pen came to me in a jar of old pen parts, and was arguably the best find of the batch. It’s got no identifying marks whatsoever; the nib just says ‘Iridium Tipped USA,” and that is it. I’m assuming it’s from around 1955-65, clearly a third tier pen, possibly made with the intent of being printed with a company name? However, it’s an astonishingly smooth writer, and for a desk pen, kept its fill and didn’t dry out longer than any other desk pen I own. That’s earned it a spot on my desk, where it’s filled and ready more often than not.
