29 W 43rd St., NYC. In the 1920s and early
30s the Postal pen company sold some big pens. They were high quality bulb
fillers. They had a clear center barrel so you could see how much ink was in
them. But they also had a sales gimmick. The pens sold for $2.50. With the pen
you received 5 post cards. You tried to sell the post cards to you friends for
50 cents each. With the post card, they could get a pen for $2. If you sold all
5 postcards, you got your pen for free. If they sold 5 post cards, they got
their pen for free, and so on and so on. This was a fountain pen pyramid scheme.
