    Default Favorite Advertising and Auto Point Type Mechanical Pencils

    I am have enjoyed learning about Auto Point or similar mechanical pencils. If you collect these old relics, post your favorite including advertising or just vintage Auto Point or similar. I am interested in learning about these pencils from your experiences.

    Right now I have two KS8300 Bell Property pencils, but am spying out others.

    Autopoint models to date.

    From the top, circa 1964 Model 167 in silver and brass, the silver takes .9mm lead while all others 1.1.
    Third down is a Model 172, very slender and feels good in the hand. The bottom two were listed as "new oversize models" in a 1927 catalogue.

    Three Rocket pencils. The middle was referred to as the Golden Rocket in a 1964 catalogue with a MSRP of $2.25. This one is from 1947 with provenance that came with the pen. It was a gift and the owner dated the reception date and the donor.

    I have quite a few working mechanical pencils with advertising listed in my Etsy store.

    Was able to complete the circle on Autopoint Rockets. This is the #165 or "Plastic Rocket" that sold for $1.50 in '64. This pen was made in 1958.
