John F. Kennedy’s personally owned fountain pen. JFK served as the 35th President of the United States after being inaugurated on the 20th of January 1961. Sadly, he didn’t finish his first term as President according to plans, as he was shot dead in 1963. During his three years as President, JFK accomplished 214 game-changing executive actions by signed bills to make the executive orders and presidential proclamations into reality. By doing that, he used custom-made White House pens. As of today. JFK is not only remembered as one the finest U.S. Presidents in history, he’s also widely known as on the greatest style icons in modern times. Offered here is a rare original ballpoint pen, manufactured by Parker in mid-1963. The pen is custom-made with a steel nib, black plastic barrel inscribed in white with the words " THE PRESIDENT / THE WHITE HOUSE ", and a steel top. The size is approximately 6.25 inches (16 cm). Very good condition. These pens were ordered exclusively for JFK as an alternative to the much more common Easterbrook pens. However, it’s not known if this very pen was used by Kennedy to sign a bill.
