Hi, Folks,

 
This is one of the three types of Eversharp Coronet pens with plastic barrels.  The Wahl Eversharp Coronet Gold and Green Shell Pyralin, model 17734, sold for $10.00 and the matching pencil, model 10604, for $5.00.  The plastic barrel models of the Coronet are also distinguished from the full cap and barrel gold filled model by the square windows in the cap top and cap lip.

This pen started as a real disaster.  Found in an antique store, the clear ink view section was disintegrating, heavily crisscrossed with cracks like a broken window.  I sent the pen out for repair.  The top of the barrel was sawed off and a new clear section was glued on as a replacement.  The repair was nicely done and only shows under careful examination.  The cap shows wear from lots of use.  
 
The two other plastic barrel models feature a black barrel, with a choice of rhodium plated cap (pen $8.75 and pencil $2.75) or gold filled cap (pen $10.00 and pencil $5.00).  The cap design is identical to the pen shown.
 
Thanks!

Thanks for sharing, Jim.

 

Love the Coronets!

 

Great deco design....

 

Had the matching pencil for this pen once.....along with several other gold Coronet pens (some with black and some with red pyralin accents).

 

Thanks,

 

Mark

My goal is to get one of the full gold fill pens with black pyralin, and the black barrel ones with both the gold and rhodium plate caps for a complete photo shoot.

Has anyone ever seen an example of the rhodium cap model in person? The pencils crop up with some frequency. But I don't think I've even come across the pen eBay over the years (for comparison, I've seen 3-5 sterling "First Year" Sheaffer Crests over the same period).

Found the answer to own my question! A set sold on here a few years back, in fact. Photos are broken but linked thumbnails still work:

Is the beneficiary of the trade still around these parts?
