Vintage Nonfunctional Display Pen (1920s) - Uncommon, Meant to Look Like BCHR (Perfect, Does Not Write)

Be the first to review this product

Non-functioning display model. Retailers used these to reduce loss from theft, and since it's a dummy, there are even fewer of them than working pens. Very rare.

Type Nonfunctional dummy pen, used for display purposes

Product Name Nonworking display model

Manufacturer and Year  1920s (it was modeled on an eyedroppper)

Length  5-1/2"

Filling System None

Color Meant to look like black chased hard rubber, but it feels like solid plastic.

Nib None

Condition  This is a nonworking display model of something like a Waterman 12. Why would we offer this for sale? Consider the rarity of these - retailers might get one of each model for the display case, while storing the more valuable functioning inventory in a secure location. This particular one looks to be in excellent condition - no scratches, discoloring, or warping.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
