Conklin Endura pencils are really a pinnacle of design in Roaring '20s writing instruments. The lapis celluloid Conklin made for this pencil looks like a night sky as painted by Vincent Van Gogh. There are small doses of brassing on all of the metal trim. There are other traces of wear on this vintage pencil. Twist the tail cap to advance and retract the 1.1mm lead. No eraser but a spare lead is under the tail cap. This is a junior sized pencil. 10.8cm.
