I have bought a lot Eversharp mechanical pencils. And I think one is a "Coronet" pencil. It looks like silver (or rhodium) plated. The imprint reads simply "EVERSHARP" and "MADE IN USA".

Another one is gold filled and is a propelling pencil. It is "made in England".

Can anyone give me more information please?

The top image is "Coronet-like"  It has a "Coronet Clip" and a Pacemaker/Coronet style propelling button.  Technically it is not a Coronet Pencil.  Wahl-Eversharp made pencils that were never mated to pens.  Some of their designs were in pencil form only.  There were plastic body/metal cap Coronet-like" pencils and all metal ones too.  The Pencil at top was made between 1936 and 1941.

 

 The bottom pencil is interesting because it sports a machine turn design that was pretty much passé when the pencil was actually made.  The clip would make the pencil from the Ventura era, but the engine turning pattern is from the middle to late 1920!  Many odd combinations show up in items found in Europe and England where I believe Wahl-Eversharp in one form or another created a number of designs not sold in the US nor catalogued.  I will research this item and see what I can find out, but I do not expect to find much.
