400,000 pens: collector from East Frisia is aiming for a world record

Osnabrück. Gerd Reck from Rhauderfehn in East Frisia has been collecting ballpoint pens for 28 years. According to his own estimate, the 58-year-old now has 400,000 pieces. A woman in North Rhine-Westphalia still holds the record with 350,000 pens. Reck is convinced that he will surpass this mark and now wants to initiate the application for inclusion in the Guinness Book of Records.

Reck distributed the pens throughout his house. Among other things, in tons that can hold 6,000 ballpoint pens alone. These huge collection bins are in the basement, where he kept most of the pens.

When his passion for collecting was reported nationwide at the beginning of the year, he had 150,000 ballpoint pens. Then Reck received parcels from all over Germany, so that the number has more than tripled.
