Admirable Adams Tribute

LeBoeuf pays tribute to one of Americas founding fathers as well as the second President of the United States, John Adams, with the release of this stunning Limited Edition fountain pen and rollerball, each limited to 125 pens worldwide.

John Adams was born in Quincy, Massachusetts, on October 30th, 1735. He graduated from Harvard College in 1755. He then began a successful law practice, becoming one of the most eminent lawyers in Boston.

From 1774 to 1777, Adams served in the Continental Congress. He passionately urged independence for the colonies, and in 1776 he was appointed to the committee to draft a declaration of independence. His copy of Thomas Jefferson’s draft of the Declaration of Independence is the earliest known draft in existence.

Elected by Congress to negotiate treaties of peace and commerce with Great Britain, Adams traveled to Europe in 1779 accompanied by his son and future president John Quincy Adams.

In September 1783, after nearly a year of negotiation, Adams and his fellow commissioners signed the Definitive Peace Treaty with Great Britain. From 1785 to 1788 John Adams served as the first American minister to the Court of St. James’s in London. After eight years abroad, in France, the Netherlands, and Great Britain, Adams returned to the United States.

John Adams spent the next eight years as vice-president under George Washington and, in 1796 became the second President of the United States.

After one term in office, Adams was succeeded by Thomas Jefferson. Adams retired from public life to his farm in Quincy. He died on the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, 4 July 1826.

The LeBoeuf John Adams Limited Edition was produced using carefully selected exclusive Cranberry /Patriot Blue Marble acrylic barrels which represent the colors of his home state of Massachusetts. Each barrel has been hand polished and carefully engraved with the famous John Adams signature in gold fill. On the top of each cap, sits a specially designed 14k gold plated coin, which features his likeness during his presidency. A 14k gold plated clip with the LeBoeuf logo completes each pen.
