About The Fountain Pen Recycler

The Fountain Pen Recycler was founded in 1989 by Mike Carter, the owner of Crystal Coin & Collectibles, and a collector of vintage fountain pens, writing equipment and ephemera for over 45 years. At the time of founding, the fountain pen collecting hobby was still relatively new, but collectors were avid and Mr. Carter realized the need for a full service sales and repair facility for the growing hobby. The first issue of the "Recycler" vintage pen list was December of 1992.  It was published continually for over 15 years, thus making it one of the longest running continually published vintage writing instrument listings in the U.S.   In 2000 this list began to be replaced with this website fountainpenrecycler.com.  In 2018, Mike's son, Mike Jr. joined his dad in the business.  Mike Jr. has been around the pen business since he was born and has the same love of pens as his dad and will take over when his dad retires. With the addition of Mike Jr. and this website, we hope to bring our love of the pen collecting hobby to many new friends and customers. We will be regularly listing selections from our vast inventory of over 2000+ pens and writing collectibles. If you don't see what you are looking for, chances are we may still have it or know where we can locate it for you. Give us a call. We will be adding extra features over the next few months, so come back regularly.
