Did it chart a course somewhere in the Pacific? Did it make fuel calculations over Europe? Who knows where this little Sheaffer SA pencil has been? It has a 1940s military style clip that would keep it hidden under the flap of.a serviceman's uniform pocket. Judging by the wear, it saw some kind of action...even if it was only in an office in the States. All the same, it is in great working order and ready for more hard work. The .9mm lead advances and retracts with a twist of the tail cap. There is a spare lead under the tail cap but no eraser. 10.3cm.
