Erasermate pens:

Introduced in 1978, I had a couple. Even though the ink was erasable, it didn't erase completely, so you could still see what you previously wrote. I don't think documents and forms could be written or signed in erasable ink, and banks wouldn't allow you to write or sign checks with erasable ink either. I'm not sure if they make erasable ink pens these days, but I wouldn't buy one.

Yes, I remember those. And I do remember being told not to sign checks with them (even though I didn't have a checking account back then!). COLD here too, Dr. T.

I remember having a few of these when I was young and I was really excited about being able to erase the ink. I may have forged a couple of my mom's signature with them too :)

Haha
I could never forge my mom's signature, it was too fancy

I still have one

joe said...

I'm guessing it doesn't write anymore

The WORST invention for left-handed people. Your hand naturally erased the ink as you wrote...

I hadn't thought about that, but I could see how that would happen
