Harry Truman was born on May 8, 1884 and grew up in Independence Missouri. After returning as a soldier during World War 1, Truman pursued various business ventures which eventually led him into the world of politics.
In 1934, Truman was elected to the U.S. Senate. He supported the New Deal. He was chosen to run as vice president in 1944. The Roosevelt-Truman ticket won a comfortable victory over its Republican opposition, though Truman would serve only eighty-two days as vice president. With the death of FDR on April 12, 1945, Harry S. Truman became the thirty-third President of the United States. As president, he faced some of the most important decisions ever made including the authorization to use the first nuclear weapon.

Each pen barrel has been carefully turned and high polished with Truman’s famous signature engraved in gold on each barrel. A gold coin with a bust of Truman has been fitted on to the top of each cap. Gold plated accents accentuate the elegance of this special pen.
