Here we have some new items in the Supply Room. Top left is a plastic pen stand that has the map of the US. I would think from the 50s or 60s. To the right is a new pencil in the Supply Room. A Kickstater item called a Stalwart Pencil. I think this is 3.5mm lead and the pencil came with four leads and a ballpoint pen. Made from Maple Burlword so each pencil will look different. It is a big lead but is is fun to use. Below left is the Ambition Field Notes that I saw over at Unposted. Last are two items I got from JetPens. The white 60th Anniversary Parker Jotter and the 80th Anniversary Rhodia notebook and pencil. All good stuff.

Here are some of my favorite plastic pencil boxes, the Roll Tops. All three are made in the USA. The first two are made by the Hasbro Company. I have not been able so far to find model numbers for Hasbro Pencil Boxes but the middle one seeem to have been made to look like the one on the right. The pencil box on the right is the Sterling Plastic model 526 which included pencils an eraser and a Sterling Plastic Model 525 6" plastic ruler. The Hasbro boxes also come with ruler and pencils. Prices are high on these type boxes. The Hasbro boxes go anywhere from $25.00 on up and the Sterling Plastic Pencil Box starts at $65.00 for used ones and still on the card boxes go for about $125.00 on up. Mine was used but in great shape.
These boxes had all you needed for elementary school anywhere. Pencils, colored pencils, rulers and a sharpener. Add them all to your collection.

Here we have my Pentel Clic Eraser collection. Pentel just came out with their new ZE23s and it is a great addition to the line up. Top left are three of my orginal ZE21s. I started collecting these erasers in the mid 70s. Number four is the ZE21 with the red eraser and hot colors, next is a Pentel Rock 'N Write ZE21MB. Next two are the translucent ZE21Ts with the new S pocket clip. Last in the row is the ZE22. Right top is a solid color ZE15 Ain Clic followed by a translucent Ain Clic ZE15. Below that is a solid blue Pentel Tri Eraser ZE-15 followed by a green translucent Tri Eraser ZE-15. Below that is a Pentel ZE32 Hyperaser and then a yellow squared ZE80. Now we come to the new ZE23 erasers. These have a clear plastic body and a colored eraser. They come in purple, pink, green and blue.
These are a great addition to any collection and work just fine. I am glad to see Pentel come out with a new eraser in great colors. Add all these great erasers to your collection.
