Brand: Mitsubishi Pencil Co.
Made in: Japan
Older 9800 model with JIS mark and the word Patented vs the more modern model with the word Matured. Always a nice little distinguishable mark for collectors. Learn more about vintage Japanese pencils on the BNP blog!
Founded in 1887 and formerly known as Masaki Yomato, Mitsubishi Pencil Co., Ltd. is best-known today for its “uni” brand of quality writing instruments sold worldwide. Curiously, this Tokyo-based business is unrelated to Mitsubishi Motors and other brands within the Mitsubishi Group. Same name, same logo, completely different company.
