The Americana Rollerball Pen
This pen is the same in style and feel as the ballpoint, and comes in the same desk box, but writes much like a fountain pen. The ballpoint uses an ink paste, whereas the rollerball uses fine liquid ink.
These handsome pens are made exclusively for the USS Constitution Museum and sold only by the Museum and a few authorized agents. They have become very popular, especially as gifts, and have been extremely well received by our many customers.
The casing of each pen is expertly fashioned by a New England craftsman from wood removed during overhaul. On the barrel of each pen the words "USS Constitution" are engraved next to the clasp. Each pen is boxed as noted and is accompanied by a card noting the provenance of the wood and the workings of each pen. Our pens are fully warranted and we will repair or replace any pen returned to us as defective.
