An eBay seller sent me a few “bonus” items with some pencils I bought – vintage lead refills.
The leads are 1.18 mm in diameter. Though once the standard, this diameter is infrequently used today. Unfortunately, I don’t own a pencil that can use this lead.
What has kept me interested is the packaging – these quotidian items have some beautiful graphic design.
The instructions and charts are engaging. (“Rear Drive vs. “Front Drive” – are we conversing of cars or pencils?)
I’m hoping to get a pencil that could use this type of lead.
