The Winners and Old Lead

 
Posted by Picasa
The two winners of the Pentel S360 Gray Pen set was number 2, B2-Kun and number 6, Marcus. So if you two will send me a email at moose@hot.rr.com with a address I will get the pens in the mail. Now for old lead. Both Dave's Mechanical Pencils and Lung Sketching Scrolls have some outstanding posts on the newest item to collect,old lead in their original packaging. Well we also have some old lead down in the supply room. Here was a complete Scripto Lead Cabinet from the 40s to the 60s. This one is closer to the late 50s to early 60s. I have been using and trading some of the lead over the years but there are still 21 boxes of different grade writing lead and 40 boxes of colored lead. All 1.1mm which will fit the Scritpto K780, K770, K760 and the K750 pencils. This case still has the original inserts. The Scripto Lead Cabinet came in two types, one having more variety of color leads. This one in the picture was the NR 2 display with red, blue, green and yellow lead. Add all the old lead you can find to your collection.

  1. Thanks George! You are certainly the enabler for the quest for old leads. After stocking up on vintage drawing leads, I have had a short phase of getting some historical pencil tins and currently eyeing some twist-lock leadholders from the early XX century. With so few items been released in the realm of art supplies these days, online auctions for vintage supplies can be dangerously addictive.

  2. Hi
    In that lead cabinet do you have any silver or white? I have many other colors to trade or am willing to buy. Thanks
