Brand: Mohican Pencil Co.
Made in: USA
Not only a rare brand, but this pencil can be found with the name Mohican 417 as well as the Seneca 417 here.
Not a lot is known about the Mohican Pencil Co. Newspaper records show the company filed for bankruptcy in 1940. William Sanderson Furst, a former president of the Mohican Pencil Co., died in 1933 according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Perhaps the Empire Pencil Co. eventually purchased Mohican, as we have seen advertisements for "Empire Mohican Pencils" as early as 1963 ... on sale for 19 cents for a pack of five.
