Here is one of the largest finds of great old pencils to ever hit our door down in the supply room. There is something like 65 pencils plus 5 boxes. Pencils for the most part are Faber Castell. A partial list includes FC 9000,FC 9000 with lead imported from American Zone Germany, FC 828 green. There are four others pencils that state FC 9000 but have a different design. FC 827 blue,FC 1443 red, Eberhard Faber 6535 indigo and 1 Venus. Most seem to be Faber Castell 9000s HB and Fine. Of the 4 tins 2 are made in New Jersey, 1 is made in Nurnberg Germany, one with the flowers can not read but appears to be made overseas. Cardboard box was empty but has nice graphics. May have a give away on some of these fine old pencils. Add them all to your collection. Just a update. It looks like these pencils are from the 40s to the 60s.
Nice haul. Enjoy them in good health. Pencils from that era perform just fine. Actually they beat any dime a dozen pencil currently in the market.ReplyDelete
