This Papermate ballpoint and pencil is in excellent condition. with a loupe I can just make out some thinning to the gold plated caps, mainly on the pocket clips. Such fading to the plate is very common with these pens as the plating was only very thinly applied. These full-sized slim imstruments have a very attractive brushed gold plated finish to the caps, which is decorated with the vertical incised lines. The pocket clips bear the Papermate double heart logo at the terminal in black. Both barrels are a glossy dark grey colour.
The ballpoint is retractable with a push-button action.
The pencil is a twist to extend and retract the lead. The cap pulls off to reveal an apparently unused pink eraser. This pencil accepts 0.9mm leads, and I have fit a fresh lead so it is all ready to go.
The original box is made from leather textured black plastic. Inside is a dark brown velvety pad.
Both pen and pencil work perfectly. The pen's original Papermate still seems to be working well. . I really do not see many good vintage Papermate pens, and it is most unusual to find the boxed set in such nice condition.
