This is registered pen number BALL1916. Only 6 men signed both the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence – Two of them lived in the house next to this tree. ( This Mulberry tree is believed, by some historians, to be the Only still living tree planted by a signer.)

THE HISTORIC SITE AND PEOPLE

The Historic site is Summerseat in Morrisville Pennsylvania. The signers were Robert Morris (the financier of the revolution) and George Clymer. It not only was the home of Robert Morris and George Clymer, but also served as Washington’s headquarters at the end of 1776, as well as a Revolutionary War court. (And was the site of a reception for The Marquis de Lafayette after the war.)
This site, as most sites, is in need of support, so I make and sell these pens and donate some of the pens back to the site for their own use in fund raising. If you visit this site (check for it’s open times http://www.historicsummerseat.com/) ask to buy a pen, that support helps.

UNIQUE AND RARE

Nature gives each of these a unique design which I have the pleasure to reveal. Because of the source I can only make so many, so they will remain inherently rare. Hold some history in your hand and share it with friends and family.

To help you find pens from specific historic sites I have put together these links.

THIS PEN

Buff with subtle graining, and a small “eye” near the point. With age the pen will turn deeper shades. It is a twist action Ball Point pen that uses a Cross refill available at any stationary in broad, medium and fine points and three colors, and can even be converted in to a mechanical pencil. The metal finish is a sealed 24kt gold.

COMES WITH THE PEN

Each pen comes suspended in a box suitable for gift giving (gold with a clear top) and a parchment paper pamphlet giving a history of the site, and its most notable inhabitants Robert Morris (a life filled with irony) and George Clymer.

MADE TO BE COLLECTABLE AND PASSED ON

These pens are meant to be used, but they are also meant to be collectable and passed on to succeeding generations or among friends. Therefore each is given a unique, recorded collectors number. Along with the number I keep 4 high resolution photos for future authentication identification if needed. These pictures are also sent along with the pen on the accompanying authentication and continuing provenance card. The continuing provenance card is there for each successive owner to sign and give this pen a family history of its own over the years. So if you are giving this pen as a gift you should sign the first slot to start its history trail.

Sites I now have available are:
Princeton Battlefield
The Mercer Oak ( a witness tree in the Battle of Princeton)
Battle of Trenton (1st)
Valley Forge
Summerseat
Christ Church Burial Ground
The Benjamin Rush Oak
