It is the Cross Century.

 

Not Century Classic or Classic Century. To be exaxt: Century. No other words. In its model name it follows the mechanical pencil introduced in 1946 and called the Century because 1946 is 100 years later than the date Cross gives as the date of the company's founding.

 

When, somewhat belatedly compared with some other manufacturers, Cross introduced a ballpoint pen, the one in your illustrations, it was the 1950s already and no longer 100 years from the founding, but Cross called it the Century.  That is also the model name of the slim fountain pen Cross introduced in the early 1980s.

 

Until some time after World War II, Cross was primarily a manufacturer of mechanical pencils, sold under its own name, and pencil movements, sold to other manufacturers and incorporated into their own products without any mention of Cross.

Thank you very much, Jerome Tarshis!

 

But the curious and intriguing thing about this Cross pen is that I can't find a picture on the Internet!

I didn't find any pen with the golden top button!

By the way, it's a very rare ballpoint pen!

I discovered the "riddle"! Someone made the gold button and put it in the pen! It's not an original Cross button!

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
