This VERY RARE SPECIAL EDITION Fountain Pen set was made in France circa 1995 - 1996.   COLLECTIBLE!!
 
History:
The Eversharp company (like many Pen companies of the period)  had a revival in the mid 1990's.  Using the classic designs of the old, Eversharp began offering new creations.  One of those was the Eversharp Skyline Yellow Cab,  inspired by  the 1936 Ford V8 Taxicab.
This special edition is based on a solid yellow resin barrel and cap, with gold electroplated fittings. The words "YELLOW CAB" are printed around the lower portion of the cap along with a traditional checkerboard pattern.
 
The refill system is accessed by unscrewing the blind cap which allows access to the captive converter.
I have been told that the Converter can be removed in order to be cleaned AND in order to accept Parker style refills.
 
Length 5 1/4 in (13.5 cm) capped
Length  5 3/4 in (14.5 cm) posted
 
The Yellow Cab toy model is a die-cast and plastic model of the 1936 Ford V8 Taxicab , produced by Solido,  a French manufacturer of die cast model cars and trucks based in Oulins, Anet, France, 40 miles west of Paris.
 
I am told the Yellow Cab toy model is itself a collector’s item, as it too is very rare.
