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.

    Thanks Val, yeah I think I did post some of them.

    I have some more - Like I know I have an old ESSO pen, and then I have one of those pens that had like mineral oil in the end, and when you moved the pen the thing inside would move back and forth. Plus have some just weird pens too over the years.

    ~ Now really -- What don't I HAVE here.......ROFLMAO ..... lol
