Vintage Plastic Vps



Recommended Posts

I have three plastic VPs that predate the popular faceted models, and I'm trying to find out if they're considered particularly collectible. I haven't seen ones like these come up for sale or trade in years, but I don't know if that's because they're rare, or because their plastic bodies and less refined internal mechanics make them less desirable. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

IMHO, older VPs are very collectible.

You might want to try Carmen Rivera Pens website to start your research. She has a page listing all the VP's from 1963 to 2010, all with pictures. You can see whether you can find yours there.

for capless general rule of thumb the older it is the better the price

here are your benchmark prices... convert as needed and add your kickbacks if you so wish to dispose of them to the gray market

this is assuming its in good mint condition though

Visit Carmen Rivera's site, Rivera Pens.

 

She knows more about Capless than anyone outside of Pilot. Very unique collection too.
