A dozen vintage Dixon pencils.
They are marked:
Leadfast PAT. 1927142 Made in U.S.A. Dixon Ticonderoga 1395 No. 2 5/10
A cardboard holder has an illustration of Fort Ticonderoga, and the slogan “A Dixon Pencil For Every Use”.
US Patent 1927142 was issued on September 19, 1933, for the eraser/ferrule combination.
They don’t make them like this anymore!
