Quite a lot of 'Presidential pens' have been Parker Duofolds.  For an interesting review on this history, try this website:  http://www.parkerpens.net/

Truman and I think IKE used Esterbrooks.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Looks like they passed the pen around.  I do see an open inkwell in this picture.
