I'm the grandson of the owner of Gerner Pen Company.
He had 100+ cigar boxes filled with parts (casings, nibs, etc.) in his Dorchester basement. Today, unfortunately, only a few dozen Gerner pins are in our possession.
Any history people could give me would be appreciated. I still use Gerner pen and pencils.
Thanks to this group for its existence. Although I now live in the American Midwest, I have great memories and fondness for the work Grandpa Gerner did...
