New from Cross are the Townsend 20th Anniversary Limited Edition Fountain pens- available in Gold-plated and Platinum-plated versions.
Apparently US Presidents are all the time using Cross pens to sign for their White House pizza deliveries. Looking at this pen one can see why- it’s a looker.
The Platinum is plated in Platinum. The Gold is plated in 23k Gold and limited to 500 pieces. Both sport a two-tone 18k Gold Nib with Rhodium on it too.
From the Cross website:
For those who value individuality and impeccable style, Townsend embodies classic American elegance and finesse. Inspired by the graceful lines of 1930’s Art Deco design, with distinctive finishes, precious metals and the signature double band, Townsend delivers a lifetime of smooth, effortless writing. No wonder it’s the pen of choice for several American Presidents.
The Gold version lists for $750.00 and sells for around $600. The Platinum lists at $450 and sells at about $360
