Brand: Colleen P.Co., LTD.
Made in: Thailand
As I understand it, after Colleen liquidated in 1997 employees later formed their own company in Thailand. This Hi pierce 4B is from the newly formed company. See Hi pierce F to compare a Japanese and Thai-made Colleen side-by-side.
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.
