View Full Version : Quite a surprise in Esterbrook boxes

My beautiful other half bought these at an estate sale, imagine my anticipation. When opened, all was not as it seemed.




Stratford mechanical pencils.
Extremely inexpensive, in a misc box for $3. I will have to research and find someone who will appreciate them. Let me know if you know of anyone.

Ugh--what a disappointment (if you were hoping for Esterbrooks).

I was laughing when I opened them. Absolutely a A+ for the effort. She has learned a lot about fp's and did not think they were Esterbrook's. She also picked up a Parker desk pen set...that works, a 45 I think. Pic of it coming soon, it cleaned up very easily. For $5.50, had box and original instructions and price tag. Very cool!!
