At the time some 50 plus years ago these pencils may have been your best value. This is another great example of a cardboard counter display by a name brand pencil maker. Only missing a few pencils and someone put another type in there as well. Made by the Empire Pencil Company which is located in Shelbyville Tennessee. Pencils still work fine and this display and pencils were made in the USA. It is hard to picture these types of cardboard displays on the shelves today. Add them all to your collection.
