Vintage USSR rocket fountain pen (space exploration, Sputnik, moon)
Stunning original fountain pen (USSR, 1959).
A real, beautiful collectors item.
The pen was produced to commemorate the development of the USSR's space industry (Sputnik 1 had been put into orbit in 1957, and the Soviets were leading the way in space); hence the obvious rocket design. The pen still has ink on it from the last time it was used (decades ago). As far as I am aware, this is in perfect working condition.
It is incredibly rare.
No offers below the asking price please.
Was produced in (my Russian is not great) LSNH Factory, Leningrad, Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic.
In wonderful condition for a pen that is 60 years old.
