A bold, dignified and very handsome pen, embodying the many virtues of John Adams, stalwart champion of American independence and second president of the United States.

The clip, a model of perfection, is engraved with a garland of olive leaves and a portrait of Adams. The captop is ringed with a magnificent circle of 28 brilliant-cut diamonds, and is crowned with a radiant Montblanc star in mother-of-pearl. Medium 18K rhodium-plated gold nib engraved with 13 stars and the legend "America's Signatures for Freedom."
