Cross Pens

leave a comment »

I have always enjoyed a quality writing instrument.  While in my teens, probably for my confirmation, I received a set of Cross Pens.   I enjoyed writing with them and soon became a fan.  The A.T. Cross Company was founded in 1846 in Providence, Rhode Island.  This family of jewelers started making gold and silver pen casings.  The company developed many innovative new writing instruments, including forerunners of the modern mechanical pencils, and the earliest stylographic pens.  The Cross pen became a “must-have” accessory for the rising professional during the 1970s and 1980s.  Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.
