For more than 40 years, standard black pens have cluttered the desks of thousands of federal employees, hung on a chain at post offices across the country and slipped into the pockets of countless military personnel. Yet few have realized that this government-issue pen has a history to rival that of any monument.
Absolutely fascinating. I had no idea. Now I want to get my hands on some of these pens. Need to talk to some friends in Dot-Gov.
