I recently acquired a second Hallmark overlay - the 3/4 overlay in the photo. I have a similar Kraker 3/4 overlay with the "checkered ribbon" design. The full overlay actually looks much like a Sheaffer, but based on other Hallmark pens I have I'm fairly certain that these pens were made by Kraker. In addition to the clip patent date on these pens, I have a few black hard rubber Hallmark pens that have other Kraker elements as a keyed section and the complex 2-pin lever with the coil spring pressure bar. Both of these overlays have a simple single pin lever. I'm curious if anyone has other (probably) Kraker made pens (as Bon-Ton, etc) that have either the 2-pin levers or an overlay.

I believe I have photographed Kraker overlays.

I've seen the photo before - I'm curious about how many of the pens have the 2-pin lever system.

Eddie;

There is a huge thread on this over at Lion and Pen. Dennis Bowden has a deep interest in all things Kraker and Kraker derivatives.

Short answer - I'm very interested in the Hallmark pens. In fact, if you would consent to sell one or more to me, please let me know.

I have some Krakers, Several Bob-Ton's, and later made pens by George Kraker, but have not seen the two-pin lever in anything except early Krakers. That design is what cost Kraker the lawsuit. No overlays in my collection at all.

You may contact me by email at drblaw@kc.rr.com or by PM.

Eddie - the next time you come to FM, we'll check out 2 pin levers on Cyndie's collection.

Nice to see you on FPN
