After the PG7 we have four PG5s that I can not place because the side writing is gone or was never there. Last is another PG7. The roller ball is first generation R6. Add all these pencils to your collection.

These are just great pencils all around. Most of these came with a Pentel Roller Ball pen. Starting on the left we have the SG-7 then the PX7-21 with and without the Olympic Logo. SG-75 which came with a R-7 Slim Roller. Silver is the P1007 then the blue SG-45 followed by another P1007. Prices on Ebay for the common pencils like the silver or gold color are fair. The hard to get colored ones are very pricey. Add all these great pencils to your collection.

I think this is a first edition of the R-6 Roller Ball Pen. I say R-6 because the pocket clip is gold and the current model of the R-6 has a gold pocket clip.The body color is an off white. Current R-6s are on the right next to the Red R-4s.
I also have a first edition of the R-3. Starting on the left I have four versions of the R-3.
Here is the first edition of the R-3 up close.
Below is the R-6 with the R-3s. You can see the off white color. Add all these great pens to your collection.

I have added a few more Pentels to this group. There always seems to be another Pentel pencil or color out there that I did not know about.
The Pentel people did a good job of making a nice mechanical pencil for every hand size.

I have always been a fan of Sterling Plastic office and school supplies. I used them all through the 60s and the beginning of the 70s. All our local five and dime stores had Sterling Plastic. In this picture we have the Sterling Plastic Educator Boxes. Left side are the Presidents of the US Boxes. If you are collecting these boxes remember there are five different ones. Each box ends with a different President. The earliest box and the most popular ends in JFK. The last box ends in President Carter. I am missing President Ford. On the right are the Events in US History, Map of the World and the US States.
Her we have the newest box in my collection. On the left is a Sterling Plastic Box from Israel and is in Hebrew. First time I have ever seen one of these. On the right is the hardest to find box. Our Solar System.
Our Solar System is complete. In this box Pluto is still a planet. Add all these great pencil boxes to your collection.

I grew up with Sears. We would get the catalog in the mail and look at the toys for Christmas. Sometimes we would go to our local Sears store which was just down the street from Big Boys. No more. As I did with Radio Shack I bought something that I could use. A Sears pocket calculator.
This one is complete and works fine. 8 digits,memory and a percent key!!

Since we are close to Halloween lets have some glow in the dark fun. This is a pencil case glow in the dark holder for a iPad Pro Apple Stylus. Any BIC should work but the cap needs to be posted on the pen. I replaced my BIC with a BAUX BIC but with cap any BIC should work.
Next hit a light and the glow is on. They come in green and blue. Add one to your collection.

Since the ruler was in the last post I might as well get with it. I collect a lot of rulers and when I saw this 6" glass ruler I jumped. The case is shot but the ruler is in great shape. Glass and a 1/4" thick this would be a great addition to a desk top.
