This is the on that started it all for me. From my father, maybe from his father. 1960 Canadian Compact with pencil. I dont see too many shots of these sets so I thought Id share. I still use it occasionally. This started the addiction!
I picked up this lovely gem from The Bay. I finally got around to cleaning it up which consisted of a simple flush and a quick buff. Sadly I believe that my Compact is missing a part. As compared to my Sheaffer Holly Pen it would appear that the Compact is missing the "collar" which would hold the cartridge in place.

(I'm going to guess yes, but figured it's a safe question to ask) 2) Do these generally come with a built in converter? 3) If not, is there a converter that will fit and not cost an arm and a leg? (It's a compact pen, so that's why I'm asking in particular) 4) Why isn't the moon actually made up of cheese? That'd be so much better... Anyway, thanks in advance, guys. Trying my d
