Sterling Plastic Pencil Sharpener

Well I broke down and bought the Sterling Plastic Apollo Space Capsule #506. Back in January of 2013 I posted this rocket that rides on the back of a Lionel train car with a capsule that only had SP stamped on the back. At the time the original #506 was out of my price range. I found one the other day with a good price so I jumped. The capsule is the most expensive of the small Sterling Plastic pencil sharpeners. Add one to your collection.

Mad Men Returns Part 2

Well here we have the whole box that I received from the folks at Mad Men. They not only returned the items I had sent them over the past four years but some items that they picked up for the show.

Yes that is a autographed picture of Jon Hamm. I asked for that. We also have a very nice Wearever counter top display for their ball point pens. There are also two salesmen sample sets of ball point pens.

Here we have a Hasbro ruler and pencil case along with a gun pencil case still on the card. We have two old Carters Marks-A-Lot markers. Pencil case and a protractor.

Here are more protractors, Flair pens, Scripto pencils, ink refills and pencil cases. There is a Lindy pen up on top. All good stuff.

Here are the pens. I still need to go through them all but there are about 25 Parker Jotters, Sheaffer ball point pens and Scripto pens. They kept track of all this stuff by taking pictures of the items and putting them in plastic zip lock bags. Seems to have worked well. May do a give-away of some of these nice old pens from Mad Men. Add all this stuff to your collection.

New Pentel PSD5 Pencil

 It took some time to get my hands on a Pentel PSD5 Pencil and here it is. This one was used and was missing a cap over the eraser and it does not work without the cap. I contact Ginger Goode who is the Consumer Quality Assurance Manager at Pentel of America and she found me the part. What a great pencil and a big thanks to Ginger. The pencil is listed in my 1985 Pentel Catalog so the pencil has been around at least that long.

Here we have both of my favorite vanishing point pencils. Top one is the Pilot H-2005 and on the bottom is the Pentel PSD5. I don't know who was first but there have been plenty of variations of this Pilot and there has only been one Pentel. Both are great pencils and highly collectible. Add them both to your collection.
