  Today's haul from the Post Office: top piece is an unusual, ring chased Sheaffer's gold filled metal pencil This one was produced during the late 1940's - early 1950's. Middle piece is a nice 1920's, gold filled metal Sheaffer's pencil . Bottom pencil is a very fine, no name Victorian in sterling, produced sometime in the 1890 - 1915 period.

Here's a nicely made silver metal, stick pencil featuring an attached beetle guest. Probably British. Time of production was in the 1910'ish vicinity.  Piece is a long 6 1/8".  This one, unlike many resembling it, does not pull apart and invert to double as a dip pen.

  I'm showing today a very cool Victorian magic pencil representing a two faced head; maybe like the comedy/drama thing. The pencil was made by the American Aikin Lambert Company in about 1880. The piece is about 2 1/2" long compressed and 3 1/2" extended.
