Brand: Mitsubishi Pencil Co.
Made in: Japan
Another Silvexa from Mitsubishi. Unfortunately the 3203 comes in silver.....vintage Mitsubishi pencils painted silver are notorious for paint cracking....in this case same. I have weeded out all the cracked ones and left with 1 perfect one. The next best 2 only have a small crack in the paint on the reverse of the pencil...the rest are cracked and the paint is flaking off...bummer.
Founded in 1887 and formerly known as Masaki Yomato, Mitsubishi Pencil Co., Ltd. is best-known today for its uni-ball 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.
