    Default Eversharp Identification

    New to forum. I inherited this pen/pencil set from my father which had note " Graduation present from Grammar School 1939". It was in a pen box labeled "Corona Pen Company, Antioch Illinois". However, after doing some research, it appears that the box must have been associated with a different pen. It looks like these are Eversharp by Wahl "Bantam" set.
    Can someone confirm that they are not associated with the "Corona" box?MRZ 1939 PenPencil set.jpgFountain Pen Tip.jpgCorona Pen Box.jpg
    Are they worth restoring?

    The box is indeed not correct for this pen set. The Eversharp Bantam is a nice little quality pen and it is certainly worth restoring it, especially if the set has sentimental value. 1939 is also period correct for this pen set.

    Your Bantam set is one of the nicer ones, with fancier cap bands and a Gold Wahl-marked nib. Many have a steel nib.

    Corona pens are pretty obscure high quality pens. That box would be of interest to a collector of Corona pens. Certainly worth hanging on to.
