First, a bit of background. In November 2012, at the Ohio Pen Show my colleague David Isaacson was approached by a leading collector looking to sell a significant portion of what once had been one of the world’s premier collections. He brought several of us into the deal to form what came to be known as the Gang of Five Pens. If you are interested in more of the story, check us out on Facebook.
Each of us brought different expertise and backgrounds to the consortium and my area was, of course, is European pens. I was fortunate enough to snag a good number of the Montblancs as well as many other pens.
You will find them below.
