Copying pencils were first popularized during WWI when they were used as a permanent writing substitute for a fountain pen and also for copying and transferring written documents. These older, original copying pencils contain aniline dye, which makes them permanent and copy-able. Since, the aniline dye has been found to be quite toxic--but don't worry, as long as you're not ingesting the pencil lead, they're not dangerous to use.

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.
