A Semi-Sumgai

So maybe it's not a real "sumgai" find (would've been if I'd gotten these for like $20), but while the Western world was sleeping, I picked these up on eBay yesterday for $80 total--two matching sets of Vacumatic pens and pencils in the desirable blue pearl. Note that they sport the less-common "stacked-coin" cap bands, and that, intriguingly, one pen seems longer than the other--a single-jewel long Major?


I'm semi-retired from collecting and these are the first Vacs I've acquired in more than a couple of years but I look forward to receiving and fixing them up (one pen's tines are bent, the other's section may need replacement; thankfully I have parts).
