    Nice, probably something that was intended to be used by certain people who worked for Ford at one time.

    A guess, but most likely a drafting pencil.

    Awesome is what that is!
     
  6. Looks like it may have been made by the Eagle Pencil Co.I have several that are very similar to that without the logo. Looks like it may take 1.2mm lead which I believe is still available.Probably dates to the late 1930's or early 40's. Pretty fancy too.

    Henry is probably looking for that. You had better take it back. I live near the Glass House. Mail it to me and I will return it for you.
