I've collected a few pre-1900s long eyedropper pens: Model 22s, that sort of thing. And they're capless.
Is there some collector in an island fortress somewhere who has all the caps?

Maybe this cap-Blofeld can come to the LA Pen Show.

Caps may break before the barrel? Just a thought.

 

Pens were used in pen stands? Second thought.

Taper caps are very prone to breakage, I believe.


Too many pens, too little time!
