:yikes: I think I have the exact same die as you. Did yours come in a hinged rectangular wooden box?

 

Back on topic, I gotta say the pens look fabulous.

Aren't the 144's and 145 the same size?

No. The 145 is very slightly bigger and has a screw fit rather than a friction fit cap

There is also a size difference between the 80s and 90s 144s. The 142 (only made in the 50s) was smaller than the 50s 144. The 146 was smaller in the 50s than in the 80s, and the 80s 146s are smaller than the new 146s. The 147 is the same size as a new 146.

My 144 is one of my great favorites. One of the reasons I bought it was the convenient size to carry it in s shirt. Another reason was the 144's  cartridge ability as not only does that make the pen easier to clean, my job entails a lot of writing in a pressure situation out the office and the ability to change a cartridge helps ( and why I carry two pens).

Great pictures! The 149 truly looks monstrous in front of the 144. Why is it that the star on the 149 seems rather small? On mine, it appears to be larger, almost like the 146's. Has the star size changed over time?

wonderful pictures, great way to compare them.

anyone have a 142, 145 for comparison to the rest?

 

A 142 wouldn't fit in that set since it is more like the original 144 than the later 144 shown in the pictures.

Yes, the stars have gone through many size changes.

Incredibly helpful, thank you. Reaffirms my recent 149 acquisition. And great to know I could also play softball with it in case I forget my bat.

Very nice!
One more reason to stick with the 149.

Thanks for the pictures.  And I would have thought the size differences would have been smaller between each size.

Same here, I am enjoying my 144.  And now I can see that I do not need (and likely would not use) a 149.  Thank you!
