Exclusively for the National Archives Store and Fahrney's Pens, Retro 51 has created this beautiful collectible pen with the most famous of all American signatures--those on the Declaration of Independence.
The esteemed document's signatures are screened on the pen's parchment-colored lacquer, creating an elegant reminder of the power your signature can wield.
Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is the nation's most cherished symbol of liberty. It was adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. Fifty-six delegates signed the Declaration and announced that the 13 American colonies, then at war with Great Britain, regarded themselves as independent states and no longer a part of the British Empire. Instead, they formed a union that would become a new nation, the United States of America. The original Declaration is on permanent exhibit in the Rotunda at the National Archives Museum.
In 1929, Earl Fahrney founded Fahrney's Pens as a fountain pen repair shop in Washington, D.C. With discretionary spending in a lull, Mr. Fahrney's repair business thrived. He slowly expanded and ultimately decided to sell new writing instruments, including the revolutionary ballpoint pen. Fahrney's Pens remains a family-owned business in downtown D.C.
