As shown in the picture it shows the product in a box. Also the pen shown in the box is etched with a design on the top (silver) part of the pen. the pen I got was in no box, no etching on the top (silver) part of the pen. I can buy the pen they sent me anywhere for $X.XX-$X.XX I can buy it cheaper in a grocery store where pens are more expensive.
I bought this pen because I know the Cross name and liked the way it looked. This pen is so much more than I imagined! It is the right weight in my hand, feels very comfortable and my hand doesn't get tired while using it. The price belies it's substantial look and ability. I have since bought a few more and given as gifts to friends, all of whom have liked the pen and use it daily!!! I don't think you will be disappointed a bit in this Cross pen - it lives up to its name!
I was disappointed that the pen in the picture is not the color pen I received. The pen I received had a black barrel from the tip to the mid section of the pen. I really wanted this pen to be entirely silver, this is why I stick with Amazon and not Overstock. I don't have to worry about these issues. The quality of the pen/pencil is expected from parker, so I'm more upset at Overstock than I am parker for not stating or making it clear that the pen was in fact half silver/black.
