Product Name Valiant Tuckaway 500 Pencil. (The 500 in imprinted on the barrel)

Filling System It takes 0.9mm (or "thin") leads, which it extends via the traditional twist mechanism. We'll include a small pack of leads.
Color Carmine red striated with gold plated trim.
Condition Excellent condition. Light handwear on the body of the pencil. The trim looks really good, with a small spot of brassing on the open end of the clip, and a bit of wear near the tip of the cone. It's a lovely little pencil, and working very well.
