  Mabie Todd produced this 'Opah' mechanical pencil some time in the distant past (maybe 1925, maybe earlier). The pencil is marked 'Made In England' Most Mabie Todd's produced since the 1840's were produced in America. The style looks transitional - from the Victorian to the modern. On another note, it is also an example of how not to use chalk to highlight an imprint. But back to business. Since Mabie Todd was a giant, particularly in it's Victorian heyday, this little interesting pencil is getting its day on me.  4 7/8" long.
