Ladies and gentlemen I am a newbie when it comes to this, so please anything helps. What I know:

I believe it is a century series
It is a mechanical pencil
It had above the clip, "1/20 gold filled" and "made in USA" words
It has a little plastic piece attached to clip that says "18 karat gold filled"
The cross logo is in italic letters on the clip
The owners book had a few references to a SelecTip

Any help in regards to date, or any other information would be greatly appreciated

Looks like the Cross Century pencil from the 1980's. Everyone had one of these back in the day....in silver, black or gold....usually with the matching ballpoint pen (or the Selectip fiber/rollerball)


Cross made a jillion of these with corporate logos as well.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: cross, century, mechanical pencil, 18k, 1/20, gold filled, made in usa
