Dear Lead Drivers,
I was in York, NE, a the Marble Museum this week and found a number of wooden pencils in cardboard and metal cases (the German ones were in the metal tins) that all had the "Blackwing type" eraser. They were in black as well as "Copy-" red, blue and green. The prices seemed reasonable to me (not a pencil guy) of about $1 each, including the packaging. There were also some older mechanical pencils still on the display card which also seemed well priced.
The quality was superb on all these. It is worth the stop to see if they are still there!
