Bexley.jpg

 

I am the original owner of this Bexley but I didn't keep good notes and my memory, well... I wrote down at one point that it was a Model 58 but believe that I meant 56.  I remember that it was an Owner's Club model but what year? 2008 or 2009?

 

A Google search found no images to compare - as if all Bexley history has been scrubbed.  The images I did find of olive ebonite Bexleys had a pyramidal top on cap - mine is flat and reminds me of Moby Dick with the clip placed lower like the mouth of a sperm whale.  Even here on FPN the older post images are no longer available.  

 

I was really confused when I couldn't find the Bexley website which at one point had an Owner's Club/past editions section for reference.  Finally I came upon the threads (posted during FPN/buying hiatus) about Bexley's sale.  Sad.  Will likely be a lot more of this in the future.  

 

So I turn to the FPN knowledge base.  Please tell me what I should know and I promise to make better (analog) notes.

It's a 56 model. If it was an owners club it would have engraving on the barrel starting it was an owners club and the year.

2009 is a different model with a cap band. I can't recall 2008 now. Will look more.

There are no markings on the barrel - none.  The only thing identifying it as Bexley is the nib.

Probably just a regular 56 then. There were pens made for pen shows, but those had engraving on the cap or barrel too.

I remember that it came in three colors of ebonite - brown? red? and olive but when I was ready to purchase, the olive was the only one left. My second choice.
