    Description

    1944 Green Bay Packers NFL Championship Gold Fountain Pen Cap Presented to Frank Jonet. One of the rarest Green Bay Packers championship pieces of them all, this 14 karat gold pen cap represents the Pack's 14-7 victory over the New York Giants, which took place on December 17, 1944 at the historic Polo Grounds. Presented to Frank Jonet, the team treasurer who helped guide the Packers through one of the most perilous periods in their history when it fell into receivership in the mid 1930's, the offered lot features an impressive engraving which reads: "Frank Jonet Packers World Chapions[sic] 1944".

    Recently rescued from a Northeast Wisconsin coin shop by our consignor, it was destined to be disregarded as scrap metal, and most likely would been melted into bullion. Admittedly it has some issues, as the clip is no longer attached to the cap, and would have to be fixed professionally, but once fixed it could be matched with a navy blue "Eversharp" fountain pen that can easily be found on the Internet.

    With the only other known 1944 NFL Championship gold pen being the example Packers player Pete Tinsley received, this historic piece will surely end up in the hands of a most discerning Packers enthusiast.
