Pencil: Wahl-Eversharp Skyline 176 PB

Pencil: 5026 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline 176 PB
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Click-advance lead systems were brand new when Eversharp released its Eversharp 176-PB pencil. It might also be considered an Eversharp Skyline pencil. This vintage pencil is new-old-stock. You can see its original price tag/sticker ring in the photo. There is a little ink staining on the ring, but you can read most of the ring, including its 1940s' price of $3.75. We like that it is blue and that you can see how they used a different plastic for the nose cone. No brassing mars the gold-plated trim, but you can see plenty of wear marks on the pencil. Remove the tail clicker to find a hardened eraser and spare 1,1mm leads. 11.6cm.
