Brand: A. Hammer
Made in: USSR
A vintage Russian copying pencil likely made between 1926–1930.
A. Hammer Pencil Company was founded in the U.S.S.R. in 1926, and is named after the American industrialist Armand Hammer, aka the "red millionaire" as he was known in the west. A few years later, around 1930, Hammer was bought out by the Soviets and the company was renamed Sacco & Vanzetti Pencil Factory.
