Ben Franklin 500 No.3 Medium Hard

Brand: Blaisdell Pencil Co.

Made in: USA

Ben Franklin 500 with blue foil 3.  Loved these as a kid circa 1980.  NOTE:  Two boxes upon opening I discovered they were already sharpened but never used....clearly some overzealous office workers handy work...sharpen a bunch now and when you need one later you won't have to....LOL...I can only imagine.  My loss your gain.  This are being sold as such.

About Blaisdell Pencil Co.

Founded in 1893, Blaisdell Pencil Co. was based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and had a short stint in England, too. Founder Frederick Blaisdell was granted a U.S. patent in 1895 for the shelf-sharpening paper-pencil. Until about 1946, Blaisdell was the sole manufacturer of a pencil with a string sharpening feature. The company became a subsidiary of Eagle Pencil Company around the 1930s, and eventually merged with Berol.
