This Limited Edition Fountain Pen is the second limited edition from Classic Pens (CP) and is series CP2. It was a cooperation between Classic Pens, Sheaffer, and Pushkin Prizes, a literary awards program for children in Ireland presided over by the Duchess of Abercorn, descendant of Aleksandr Pushkin, the founding father of modern Russian literature. The CP2 series was launched in 1993 and consisted of a limited edition of 500 pens. The CP2 pens are therefore are very exclusive, scarce, and desirable. The CP2 Crest is fully covered in sterling silver. It was offered in a single world wide edition of 500 pens in an elaborate Barleycorn pattern. The Crest replicates the elegant design of the Sheaffer esteemed Snorkel pen of the 1950s. The pens are laser engraved on the cap banding with the CP2 logo and the individual limited edition number. The cap band is engraved with the manufacturer's name, Sheaffer, and the pens carry the London Assay Office sterling silver mark. This CP2 is a Prototype example that does not carry the limited edition number and this is how you are able to determine if the CP2 was a prototype or not.
