Golden Pearl is the official name for this Sheaffer 400 pencil's color. It is a beautiful straited tiger eye. Made in the 1940s, it shows remarkably little wear, and it is still in good working order. The .9 mm lead advances and retreats with a twist of the tail cap. Pull that cap off to reveal a petrified eraser. Under that this pencil has several spare leads. The 400 imprint means that the vintage pencil originally cost $4.00. 12.7cm.
