Rare Kennedy White House Parker Gift Pen

This is an original Parker jotter gift pen made for The Kennedy White House and given out by President Kennedy to official visitors. They were first used in 1962 and we have documentation to this in a letter written in 1962 by Evelyn Lincoln (President Kennedy's personal secretary) to Mr. Daniel Parker (The President of The Parker Pen Company) thanking him for furnishing the President with specially imprinted "Jotter" ball points for use as "Presentations and Mementos". These Parker Jotters are one of the most famous or perhaps infamous of all pens associated with The Kennedy White House. In fact these pens have an almost mystical appeal. One of the reason for this is because the Kennedy Presidential Library reproduced these pens and sold them at the library. Unscrupulous or unknowing dealers often tried to represent these reproduction as true priceless treasure from Camelot. According to John Loring who wrote the bible on Presidential Pens.  The original pens can be easily be distinguished from the reproduction by the following Kennedy's signature is smaller in the original close to the same length of the wording The White House. The original pens have metal thread on the inside the newer one are plastic. The Threading on the original is finer and the reproduction threading is thicker and has a notch above the threading. The top of the pen on the originals is more smooth without the ridge on the reproductions.  The pen shows very little use and it is in fantastic condition for its age with only a few very light scratches. The pen still works and even writes, while the filter is very old it may not be original, Parker still makes modern filter for these pens . You can now own an original piece of Camelot that is one of the most famous and replicated of all Kennedy White House gifts.  The last photo is of one of these rare pens that belonged to Evelyn Lincoln, Kennedy's personal White House secretary and was sold at the famous Guernsey's Kennedy White auction and is provided for reference only. $1100.00

President Kennedy / Johnson Esterbrook Presidential Bill Signer

This is a genuine Esterbrook White House Bill Signer. These pens where ordered by and made for the Kennedy White House to be used by President Kennedy’s as an official presidential bill signer.  After the tragic assassination of JFK President Johnson continued to use the left over Esterbrook pens as a bill signer. President Johnson was never a fan of these pens and decided to order different pens to be used as his official bill signers shortly after he took office. So the Johnson White House never actually ordered any of these pens that were made so famous by The Kennedy White House. This pen is in very good condition.

Here is a great chance to get a Presidential items tied to both the Kennedy and Johnson White House.

The last four photos show both President Kennedy and President Johnson actually using a Esterbrook Bill signer similar to this one during actual bill signing ceremonies and are provided for reference only you can find dozens more on the web. SOLD

Kennedy JFK PT-109 Presidential Gift Tie Bar
