Nicer Mechanical Pencils I

About This Pen

This batch of assorted mechanical pencils, which have arrived one by one over years, has found its chance to be inspected and listed. Actually, these are the working survivors; those that look good but don’t work now may appear at a later date if they can be made to work.  All come with at least one lead, unless specified otherwise, all take .9mm/.036” leads. Priced individually, take a one-third discount when purchased with a For Sale or Bargains fountain pen or another of this group.
