Pencil: 4730 Sheaffer PFM-I
Burgundy makes for a handsome color on the Sheaffer PFM-I line. New Old Stock! Our vintage pencil has its original chalk marks, even if it has a little light wear from where it was stored over the years. The .9mm lead is a little over extended in the photo just to get the chalk mark to line-up for the photography. Our pencil is in perfect working order. Under the tail cap is a perfect but hardened blue eraser, and under it are spare leads. 12.8cm.

Pencil: 4749 Parker Sonnet
Parker first released its super famous Sonnet line in 1994. Among the first colors were two beautiful Chinese lacquers. This is one such first-run Parker Sonnet in the design pattern of "Chinese Laque Vision Foncé." It is an exquisite pen, much like a Japanese urushi design in black with amber-sparkle highlights. You can see a spot of wear on the wide, gold-plated cap band and lighter wear elsewhere on the pencil. Twist the tail cap to advance and retract .5mm leads. Under the cap, you will find a working but mostly worn down eraser and spare leads. 13.4cm

Pencil: 3710 Faber Castell NFL Pencils
Today Faber Castell is known for its luxury pencils. Its "Perfect Pencil" retails for $260...and it is just a wood-and-graphite pencil with a platinum cap. Refills for the Perfect Pencil are $10 a pop. Yet, back in the early 1980s, Faber Castell wasn't too big for its britches. These were just regular pencils with NFL teams names on them. Please look closely as the these include the no-longer-with-us Houston Oilers and the no-longer-in Baltimore or San Diego Colts and Chargers! These pens were used to the extent that you see them. Present but rolled over are the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys and missing are the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles. What you see is what you get. Yet, a great historical keepsake for the pencil-loving NFL fan in your life.
