I don't know much, but I know they are an old company - going back the 1850s. I think they started out as the Eagle Pencil Company, later the Eagle Pen and Pencil Company. They also made an economy line called Epenco. I believe they were good quality pens. They are perhaps most noted for a line of early glass-cartridge pens that go back to the early 1900s. They later became the Berol corporation, and finally were assimilated by the Borg - I mean became part of the Stanford family - in 1995.

 

That was a nice looking pen - I had my eye on that auction as well.

You should get a Yink, I think.
