Made in: USA
Possibly made around the time Venus acquired Esterbrook, but it’s interesting that just the Esterbrook name was used here and not Venus or Venus Esterbrook. More than likely this is actually a pre-1967 pencil ... very curious!
Esterbrook, famous for making pens since 1858, was bought out by the Venus Pencil Company in 1967, forming Venus Esterbrook. The company stopped making pencils in 1971.
