I’m desperate for ANY relable information regarding the WWII era Mechanical Pencil. It has a double (brass) propellers, with a chrome/?/stainless steel body, well made. Some have a shirt clip, some have lost the clip. I have found at least 2 sizes, the longest being 6”. References to them being made by Cross as a novelty item occasionally appear. Does anyone know the truth, or where I can get reliable data? Numbers made, where sold, by whom manufactured, how distributed........thanks ! The two I have were acquired by Mom (now 94) when she was a Secretary at the U.S. Navy Bureau of Naval Meccine in 1945, gift from a USN Submariner. Bob K.
