    The upcoming Collections auction, offered by Susanin’s, is anchored by pens, coins, timepieces, toys, and ethnographic art. One of the featured lots is a Buddy “L” Express Line toy truck.

Montblanc designed the coral red and dark brown pen in the style of the 1930s, which was when Ernest Hemingway’s writing career began to accelerate. The cap bears Hemingway’s engraved signature, and the nib is made of hand-cut 18-karat gold. Also available is a Montblanc Agatha Christie pen from the same series. Among the presented coins are South African Krugerrands, an Isle of Man platinum coin, and a  $10 liberty-head eagle gold coin from 1907.
