Star mark on clip



Recommended Posts

Does anybody know why there is a star shaped mark on the bottom of the clip of my sheaffer imperial pen set? Both pens have them. They came from Europe.

Looks like a personalisation mark.

 

Yup, same here.

Not sure about this. It reminds me of a corporate symbol as might be applied for a gift.

I think It is the brand mark of "La Caixa" or "Caixabank".

 

SO it must be a pen set that was likely distributed as a corporate gift by said bank.

Sorry, forgot to add "likely".

 

It must likely be a corporate gift set. It's all guessing on my part.

 

Edit: Grrr! This goes too fast for me, I was expecting this comment to be right after the former.

 

I had judged from a search and the logo on Wikipedia. 🙂

I think it is a conspiracy.

Curiouser and curiouser...

 

Yesterday I landed my hands on an old pen, a Lamy CP1 with a 585 nib, in brushed steel, and with a hardly noticeable imprint reading BHA and a logo looking like four open books forming a semi-circle around a central point.

 

After some searching, I found it corresponds to another Spanish bank (Banco Hispano Americano), which seems to have disappeared in 1990. So the pen must predate this. It is still in great shape, looks like new, and had two long cartridges and a metallic, sac, aerometric converter, correclt working, lacks any other branding or marks except for the 585 / Lamy inscription on the nib.

 

I didn't know Lamy had aerometric converters. This one looks solid. I'll try to post a review later if I can find time.

 

What a surprising coincidence!

Farmboy knows.  Take a cue from Proctor & Gamble:
