Gold Bond was a model line of the National Pen Company in Chicago. National was a store brand manufacturer, producing a wide range of models and names for Sears Roebuck, Montgomery Ward, and others from the 1920s until after WWII. Their brands included Gold Bond, Webster, Lincoln, and Gold Medal; Gold Bond were perhaps their nicest, particularly those in the “Stonite” jade celluloid, some of which carried three gold rings near the top of the cap, perhaps emulating the contemporaneous Moores. Finally, as catalog pens, they also came in different girths and lengths. Survivors are still often found in pretty good condition.
