Brand: Colleen P.Co., LTD.
Made in: Japan
This is a funky pair. Pencils come in a box of 12 only there are 10 Colleen 2B's and 2 Fine Vermillion. That's an odd ratio. NOTE: This auction is for one green Colleen 2B as pictured on top.....the reverse does have the same as the bottom as well.
Founded in 1916, Colleen liquidated its assets in 1997. At one time it was considered one of the big three Japanese pencil manufacturers. Interesting to note that in 1982 Colleen flipped its triangular-shaped logo from right to left, and also changed its logotype to a round gothic font.
