Anyone have a tip for getting hold of a box of E. Wolff's 'Royal Sovereign' pencils from about 1919, or similar?

I need them to be hexagonal and 5mm size to fit vintage pencil holders.

Most of my pencils are still hexagonal, but around 6 or 7 mm across. When did pencils turn a bit wider? With a bit of effort and search, anything can turn up on ebay (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-BUNDLE-A-W-FABER-CASTELL-WOLFF-s-ROYAL-SOVEREIGN-KOH-I-NOOR-PENCILS/153588381137?hash=item23c294b5d1:g:WJsAAOSwYCBdHJW b). I guess you have to ask sellers for the extra narrow shaft.

yeah, most listings on ebay seem to omit the shaft size... only found one which gave that detail, which was on etsy.
