DEC 2016 The “Volumes” series of limited edition Blackwing pencils, the Blackwing Volumes 530 is a tribute to the Sutter’s Mill, California Historical Site No. 530 where gold was first discovered. The pencil features a gold finish, striped gold ferrule, black imprint and extra firm graphite. Expressly for my collector friends, a single Blackwing 530!
