  1. Greetings, from Minnesota! My name is Matthew, and yesterday i picked up a box of artifacts belonging to a U.S. Army Engineer who served in the Pacific Theater during World War II. Inside the box were many captured Japanese items with one of those items being a pen! The pen was wrapped up in cardboard with a label "Japanese Pen' written on the outside. Attached below are some pictures showing what i found. I'm looking for any information on this pen such as era, construction and if it's anything special. Thank you, -Matthew 2 B2E88A7-B556-4946-BD72-48F5D816C84B by Matthew Stone, on Flickr 743B41EE-D249-44B3-A9DC-7C7305D3AB85 by Matthew Stone, on Flickr 81178DB0-6D43-4B44-82EC-7F5F48947014 by Matthew Stone, on Flickr 720DA50A-F629-46A4-B227-20B71C90A105 by Matthew Stone, on Flickr 51327ABC-EF40-422B-8FB0-7725BCA21F1F by Matthew Stone, on Flickr 60C1D3D8-5DCC-464F-9824-2137671A56AE by Matthew Stone, on Flickr 11879090-F10F-4DBF-A904-EE5B008740EE by Matthew Stone, on Flickr BFC372DC-1659-4457-BADA-A748BCF9C564 by Matthew Stone, on Flickr 004A72CE-E85F-48A9-A94E-79AEBB6AE112 by Matthew Stone, on Flickr

    What Pen Would My Soldier Use?

    Hello, pen historians. I’m writing a fiction story, and I’m hoping you can help me out with a few period details because while I love the modern pens I have, my knowledge of vintage is practically nil. What uniform-rules-compliant pen is the most likely choice for a very poor US soldier to have purchased in 1943? I’ve read up a bit on pens with military clips, but am still rather unclear regarding the prices as they would have stood then. Any recommendations you folks have would be a big help. So, again: inexpensive pen with military clip available for purchase by US servicemen in 1943. What am I? Thank you, ~DorothyNotGale PS: Also, information on where to go to learn about likely inks and the performance of the hypothetical pen for sketching as well as writing purposes would be appreciated.
