Vintage Pens: Wahl-Eversharp Click Pencil

Vintage Pens: 0557 Wahl-Eversharp Click Pencil
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $19.99
Today we take click pencil for granted. Yet, somebody had to invent them. That company would be Eversharp! This Chicago-based company was famous for pencils before teaming up with Wahl. This dashing navy-blue pencil with golden trim is a very early click pencil, made after the two companies joined up, even though "Eversharp" is the only company listed on the clip. It still works! Click the brass tail button and a 1.1mm lead advances. Pull out the brass tail button to reveal a petrified eraser. Under that you will find a fresh spare lead or two. It has some light wear from use, but on the clip seems a bit aged and worn. 13.3cm.
