IBM Mark Sensing Electrographic Pencil
This product is currently sold out.
Originally developed by IBM for easy detection by their earliest test scanners, this pencil's electro-graphite is especially reflective. This type of pencil is often used by crossword enthusiasts because of the particularly dark line it makes. Its barrel is made of cedar and sharpens well. This is a particularly rare version, likely dating back to the late 1940s.
Made in the USA
Measures 7 1/2" long
