    To continue this Gold Bond "saga"...



    A smidgen shorter than 5 inches capped, with that super-cool clip. Each Gold Bond pen (from the same maker) that I have is slightly different than the rest, but they share the same "DNA". This one has that slight taper towards the end of the barrel. And of course, the bold yellow ends.

    This one is engraved with the name of a certain Lois (not Lane, unfortunately).

    That aspect has always puzzled me.

    Maybe a byproduct of non-mass-production methods?

    I assume they were mass produced, sort of.

    I would think that they are produced in quite a high volume since their destination is Montgomery Ward department stores (or mail order).

    But maybe they are produced and marketed in series (annually or seasonally), which could explain a bit why they came in so many varieties.

    I have to admit I know very little about Gold Bond but every time I see their pens in ebonite, they do not disappoint.
