Metal Pencil Boxes

Those were the days when wood pencils came by the dozen in a nice metal hinged box. You could keep the pencils inside or use the box for other things when the pencils were gone. Much nicer than the current modern plastic blister-pack packaging!

S731
Pencil

Metal Pencil Tin with hinged lid is very colorful. A mix of artsy animals in bright primary colors include horses, a dog, cat, white owl, a peacock and rooster with a few flowers thrown in for good measure. Measures 7.75 x 2 inches. Marked on the lower edge of lid: 1979 Shackman NY made in Hong Kong. It is further noted that the pencils and eraser were made in China, but this little pencil box is now empty, so no Chinese pencils or erasers. A little bit of rust on the bottom surface, otherwise very good condition.

Century Mechanical Pencil, ca. mid-1920s, made in Whitewater, Wisconsin. Century made high end pens for a rather short time period and they have become just one the many small Midwest pen companies that gather attention from pen collectors. Century had a close relationship with Parker and some of the Century pens and pencils also look similar to Parkers. This large over sized pencil is in black and pearl celluloid, gold filled large crown, tabbed clip is engraved Century. Short, rather typical looking ferrule, however other celluloid Century pencils I've been able to reference have all had rather long and large ferrules. Barrel is engraved: Century Pen Co Whitewater, Wis. Twist crown to extend and retract 1.1mm diameter lead. Measures 5.25 inches long, diameter is just shy of a half inch. No brassing to any trim. The pencil is made of an interesting piece of celluloid. As mentioned it is black and pearl, but on close inspection it also has a small streak of blue and a another very small bit of red. My first thought was that it the blue and red colors were stains, but they do appear to be part of the rod of celluloid that was used to make this pencil. Excellent condition and yes, it is rare!

Beautiful tortoise shell acrylic. Unscrew the crown and you'll find a couple of extra leads in the storage compartment. Measures 4.25 inches long. Twist to extend and retract the leads.

Collectible Woodcase Pencils

Wood pencils may very well be the most user friendly writing instrument in the world!

Generally non-toxic, wood pencils are leak-proof, can delete your errors and are not subject to electronic snafus. Not to mention they are inexpensive and easy to acquire. A wood pencil can write on average a line abut 35 miles long - about 45,000 words. A sharpened pencil point can withstand writing pressure of about 3700 pounds of pressure per square inch before breaking off.

Early references to graphite date back to around 1564 when plumbago was discovered by shepherds and used to mark their flocks. In 1779 K.W. Scheele in Sweden discovered that plumbago was a form of carbon and named it graphite. In 1662, Friedrich Staedtler opened a pencil shop in Nurnberg, Germany. Kaspar Faber first commercially produced pencils in 1765 in Stein, Germany by binding graphite with Bavarian clay. Faber Castell continues to make pencils and other writing instruments today. Other early pencil inventors were Corte of France and Hardtmuth of Austria who worked on perfecting the graphite composition. Today, many of the early formulas for graphite are still in use by pencil makers.

Kings Dominion Souvenir Sliding Pencil Box - This is a souvenir pencil box with brass ruler across the front edge from Kings Dominion amusement park just north of Richmond, Virginia. I'd date it to real early in their history, they opened in 1975 and the attractions painted on the sliding lid were rather short lived: Wacky Races, Coney Island, Old Virginia Line and Blue Ridge Tollway - the Eiffel Tower still stands. The sliding lid opens by putting your pencil through the hole on the right end and moving the lid back and forth, it's early '70s-nifty! Measures 12 in long x 1 7/8 wide, plenty of room for pencils or other writing trinkets. Very good condition.

Refilling your
Vintage Mechanical Pencils

Most mechanical pencils made before the late 1960s and some even after that are refilled by feeding lead in from the Point End. Those that feed from the barrel (below the eraser) are a fairly modern invention! Don't be fooled by leads in the barrel, in older pencils, that was simply a space to store a few extra leads, but that's it - just storage. As always with vintage writing instruments, exceptions will crop up!

The instruction below are from a Sheaffer package insert, but apply to most older mechanical pencils.
