Unlike any pencil we've come across, this one was originally made to be screwing into a polling station. They were made by General Pencil Company, America's oldest remaining pencil company. Each one is pre-sharpened and has a shiny brass cap with a 30 inch string attached to the end. They are available with a screw on the end or with just the string. As for the graphite--they are virtually smudge-proof and feel like an F/#3 grade. 

Vintage: unknown

Made in the USA

Measures 8 inches long

Please note that all vintage pencils may have minor flaws due to age and that you can expect the erasers to not work anymore. The pencil you will receive will not necessarily be the one in the photo but definitely one from the same dozen. We've tried our best to accurately capture the quality of the pencil and promise not to sell you something of lesser quality. For Blackwings especially, the ferrules were rarely put on straight. Please do not be alarmed if your ferrule isn't aligned with the text, it won't affect the function or value of the pencil.
