7199: Waterman cigar cutter: celluloid body warped and markings badly worn, blade well-used; rare piece also bears Rotary emblem. Only one of these is known with its original box, which bears a presentation imprint from Frank D. Waterman. Given this evidence and the tiny number of these cutters known, it has been suggested that they were made exclusively for FDW to give as gifts to his fellow Rotarians.
10525: Phenixor safety: black chas ed hard rubber,11.5 cm long, chrome plated trim, made in France, 18K nib; never filled with ink, seal is still good, as new but for age spotting to clip.

"Alwrite" was trademarked by Cross in 1918, but it is not clear if "All Write" was a variation or an infringement. Ringtop fitting may be a replacement.

7659: Cross stylographic pen: black chased hard rubber eyedropper-filler, 11.9 cm long, thick model with unusual chased cap; crisp and glossy, bold section imprint without patent date, has been converted to a scribing tool -- probably as a means to recycle unused but obsolete old stock (not usable as a pen).
10380: Eagle glass cartridge pen: nickel plated barrel with black lacquered brass cap, 12.1 cm long, one of the earliest cartridge pens made; barrel is boldly imprinted, usual wear to japanned finish of cap; untipped brass nib writes smoothly, glass cartridge also fully intact, but unrestored cartridge-section seal is shrunken and not ink-tight, so pen is nonfunctional as sold.
