Coronation mechanical pencils are not my bag man. 🙂 These two impressed me as being exceptionally stylish and well made. They found a happy home in my museum. Both are dated 1937 and honor the coronation of George VI and his wife Elizabeth. The pencils are made of sterling silver. The bottom pencil features a blue guilloche enameled body. The top piece is fully hallmarked Sampson Mordan. The lower piece has no maker markings. The enameled pencil is further marked 1937 - 1939 to represent the 2nd anniversary of the celebration.
