It is a longstanding tradition at the White House for presidential guests to receive a pen commemorating their visit. This rare Parker Jotter gift pen was created by the Parker pen company for the Kennedy White House to be given out by President Kennedy. Parker Jotter pens are some of the most famous items associated with the Kennedy White House. While the Kennedy Presidential Library reproduced these pens to be sold in the gift shop, genuine gift pens are distinguished from the reproductions by the smaller Kennedy signature, which is almost the same size as the White House wording, as opposed to a larger signature on the JFK Library reproductions. Original pens also place Kennedy's signature below the White House wording, while reproductions place it above. This elegant pen is an authentic piece of Camelot.

The Jotter was the preferred pen of President Kennedy, and he used them for signing legislation in addition to giving them as gifts. Indeed, successive presidents up until Bill Clinton used Parker pens for these purposes, and Parker even retained a special representative, John Gibb, to handle White House orders.
