THE HISTORIC SITE AND PEOPLE

The first Battle of Trenton was an amazing feat that snatched victory from the jaws of defeat and was the first of three battles that turned the diminishing and retreating colonial forces into an inspiration for the cause of freedom. This comes from a tree that is growing on the grounds of the Old Barracks, a preserved historic site, where many of the Hessians were quartered during this famous battle. This is a site well worth visiting in person or on line at

THIS PEN ENJOYED BY
Of course Trenton residents and workers. Students, teachers, and enthusiasts of American history. Pen collectors, and collectors and investors in history objects. Military personnel, Government workers and politicians, their staff and supporters. Anyone who appreciates the unique, or just simple beauty.

THIS PEN

Like most things this has two sides. A light buff side and a courser dark side. It is a twist action Ball Point pen that uses a Cross refill available at any stationary. 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 this famous battle and it’s role in the American War for Independence.

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.
