    The early pens were hard rubber. The first celluloid pens were introduced around 1926 by Sheaffer, with Parker close behind. It shook up the pen industry because the material was less brittle, and it came in colors. Waterman was rather slow in catching up by comparison. They had the ripple hard rubber pens, but it was a while before they moved to celluloid.

    In the past several months, Ray has posted on the FPGeeks classifieds very reasonably-priced late '30s Balances, as have I. Keep your eyes on the listings, though it is true that in 2020, modern pens seem to have filled the bulk of the ads there. Check out penwash's website for more nice writers from the '30s.
    I absolutely will, Thank you!!
    I'm in the market for an ebonite vintage pen in October now that I have all my flex pens upgraded and good to go.
    If I don't find one in october, I'll roll those funds into november and on and on...
