      Is it old? Is the address the building he was cleaning out?

      Actually, I live in Illinois. I looked it up and Ernest split off from his dad and started his own funeral home around 1882. I bet the pencil wasn't made for a few after that, but it is definitely old. the phone number on it begins in letters. HU-7811!
      The Wederkindt funeral homes are still around today and are the largest in NY.

      It's known as a Bullet pencil, millions were made for advertising their company or products.
