Vintage Plastic Pens Antique Pens Value

Vintage Pens
PastPens features the rare, extremely collectible vintage pens and knows all about them.
All day long I can talk about the value of a plastic melmac dish, but I rarely stop to think how valuable other plastic items are. Of course there are the obvious, like bakelite clocks or jewelry, but far be it for me to think of a mottled plastic key chain or key fob's net worth. So, enter in the fountain pen or antique pen of yesterday,  Imagine my surprise when I found out how collectible and stunningly gorgeous some pens were.  Back in the day, a good pen was a symbol of prestige. Now, some pens are worth to collectors excess of $1000 dollars no questions asked!  PastPens is a collectible site dedicated to the sale of vintage pens - but offers all kind of historic information about the manufacturers who made them.
