I have a very old Kaweco nose drive pencil. I believe if is from the 1920's. It is very large, measuring 6 3/4 inches in length and the barrel is three sided.On one side is a faded imprint that reads: KAWECO.

 

The barrel is red and cap and nose are white.

 

I bought it from a seller a few years ago who won a storage locker auction in Lancaster, California.There were scores and scores of old German pencils up for grabs, I bought a lot of them.

 

Does anyone have any information on this gem

 

Thank you,

Looks nice. But I have never seen it.

 

Perhaps someone in the "It writes, but it is not a fountainpen..." forum will know?

Perhaps some extra pics, especially of the cone?
