Retro 1951 Smithsonian Collection

Retro 1951 Smithsonian Collection

Support the Smithsonian and You Support Us All

When you visit the Smithsonian, you’re visiting the world’s largest museum, education and research complex. There you’ll find approximately 154 million artifacts and specimens held in trust for the American people. The museum is dedicated to inspiring curiosity, discovery and learning about our world through unparalleled collections, exhibitions and educational outreach programs. Retro 51 is proud to support theses efforts. A contribution is made for every pen sold in the Retro 51 Smithsonian collection.

The first design in the Smithsonian collection was the Corona twist-top rollerball pen. The deeply etched barrel is reminiscent of the ornamental bronze-colored metal lattice that covers the outside of the National Museum of African American History and Culture building in Washington D.C. Lead designer David Adjaye pays homage to the intricate ironwork crafted by enslaved African Americans in Louisiana, South Carolina, and elsewhere using this design. 

This success followed with two more worthy additions; Dino which brings a smile to the face of every dinosaur lover both young and old. And, the striking colors on the Amelia Earhart commemorative Lockheed 5B Vega aircraft she piloted in her historic around the world adventures.

Now comes the new Discovery, Gene Davis and our new favorite, Pen Pal.

Each rollerball pen is uniquely numbered on the top ring. It ships in a commemorative Smithsonian display tube.
