Nice variety of the Semi-Hex 498. The top WWII-era purple plastic ferrule is quite rare as far as WWII pencils are concerned.
Founded by Oscar Weissenborn in 1889 as the Pencil Exchange, it was renamed General Pencil Company in 1923. The family-owned enterprise continues to manufacture pencils today from their factory in Jersey City, New Jersey. Learn more at General Pencil Company website.
