Bisquitlips posted a topic in MontblancI am just beginning research on this MB Dumas Autograph Set and have been over to fountainpen.de which is typically a good first stop on the journey of discovery. They mention that it is known to be a rare set in its own right, but not much beyond that. They have a link to more information, however the link is dead. (I will notify the site.) I would really like to know why MB decided to create an Autograph set which I have to say is really nice. I like the "handwritten" note, and photo as well as the larger book box that contains all the pieces of the collection. I am sure the "handwritten" note is a facsimile, but I must concede it is a very good one that must have taken some effort to create. Linen, watermarked, antiqued or antique paper, same with the ink, and so forth. I am sure it was not inexpensive to fabricate. Could someone point me to any resources that might shed some light on this set? My Compliments!
sunnynature22 posted a topic in SheafferHi Everyone.... I wanted to share this with you. I recently found this unique diploma / document. It was among a bunch of military documents. See attached photo of "W.A. Sheaffer Pen Company, Fort Madison, Iowa; This is to certify that John R. Hynes has successfully completed the factory course in fountain pen and writing equipment service and salesmanship as outlined by the officers and executives of the Company. For Madison, Iowa, this 11th day of Nov. 1947. Gold seal with ribbons and signed by Sheaffer, president.
