 Pictured is a stockbroker pencil featuring an engine-turned sterling silver body with black and red bakelite ends. The piece is marked 935 or 93.5% silver. 925 or 92.5% silver is the accepted world standard for sterling. The English (England) established the standard many years ago. The pencil is 6 1/4 inches long and approximately 1/2 inch in diameter. Circa 1920's thru the 1930's. The high silver purity (935) suggests the country of origin to be Austria or Germany, but not England.
