A virtual mini-museum of the halcyon days of the Canadian pencil industry.
A few recent finds. The Senator is a really nice pencil but I'm not sure who made it. The Domino from Dixon is a beautiful pencil and the Pedigree is newer but I find very few Empire pencils that were made in Canada so this is rare for me.
I found a nice bunch of vintage Canadian made pencils yesterday. Included were three Eagle pencils I don't have in my collection: an red Academic 40-HB, a Valor 131-H and a Mirado 172-2H. The 172 is the no ferule version of the more common 174. I also found a nice Venus Medalist - 1605 HB. While this pencil has no ferule, I've seen older versions of this pencil with the number 727 and a ferule with a green band.
