Can you think of a better name for a pen company than John Hancock?! His signature is the one we all remember on the American Declaration of Independence. A pen company named after him is kindofa no brainer. Anyhow, Vintage Pen Fans, we have a nearly mint condition 1920s cartridge pen. It comes with a cartridge loaded in the pen and a spare metal cartridge, which you can see in the photo. The cartridges screw into the pen. It looks as if this spare is still "sealed," though the ink either leaked or dried out years ago. Very sharp looking pen with crisp imprints and no cracks. It does look a little faded and worn in parts, but we also think it likely was new old stock or close to it. Click the headline for a close-up. Its 14k gold nib writes a medium line with a little hint of stub affectation. 14cm capped.
