Classic Century Medalist Pen and Pencil Set. The stylish combination of polished chrome and 23 karat gold plated appointments makes the Classic Century ball-point pen and 0.5mm pencil set a timeless statement for those with a busy schedule. An American classic-since 1946. An icon of mid-century modern design, this is the Cross pen everyone knows and loves. We may have come a long way since then but this nostalgic favourite spans sixty years of poems and letters, good wishes and thank you's.
