Type  Vintage Mechanical Pencil

Product Name Unknown

Manufacturer and Year  John Holland  USA-- Probably the 1930's or 40's

Length  5-3/8"

Filling System  Uses 1.1mm (aka "Thick") lead, and extends lead in the traditional twist-method. Twist the pencil barrel while holding the barrel end piece.

Color Orange barrel with 1/40 14k gold filled trim. Ball ended clip.

Condition  Very Nice condition. There's a good amount of brassing on most of the gold plating - barrel end piece, clip, and nose cone. There is a mark in the barrel material, which we've detailed in the photos below; the picture shows how the light bends where the mark is present. Eraser is still present underneath the barrel end piece. The John Holland imprint is clear and sharp. It works great.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
