Another weakness of mine. I love the messages:

"It's clear, it's solid, it's hard - IT'S A CUBE"
Ice-cuber Uniflow Mfg. Co. Erie, PA

"Bango - Central Pop Corn Co"
Schaller, Iowa (near my hometown)

And of course the subject matter:

Midwest Livestock Commission Co. - Sioux City Stock Yards
Washington Kennel Club - Spokane, WA (w/dice top - go figure)
Best Hybrid Corn Co - Tennant, IA
Funks G Hybrids - Local Dealers Everywhere

Pic. 2 - that's how they are stashed. A few neat pencil sharpeners & a Japanese girl eraser.

Pic. 3 has some fun crackle celluloid 2-tone. My favorite is the 1943 calendar from Peerless Dental Lab, Everett WA

Pic. 4 - since my sisters know I collect pens these have come into my life.

    No - only mechanical pens. No Mont Blancs gosh darn it.

    Dear AR8Jason: I will never be able to pull a fast on you because you are the man about antiques - so again thanks for looking at my stuff.

    This pen (probably not a pencil) is a missing all its guts. No marks on it. I love the brown and gold crackle celluloid or bakelite housing. Thank you - what do you think about the bakelite pencil I posted?

    Yes, I prefer pens too but what attracks me to the pencils - most still can be used. Always a conversation starter and they hope you leave it behind...which I do not do.
