The Rigi B

Brand: Johann Faber

Made in: Bavaria

Ok, now this was an interesting search result. Searching J. Simpson Dundee and I get the following: Jimmy Simpson signed for Dundee United in 1924 and made his debut at the age of 17 as a wing half. Search "The Rigi" and I get the following: The Rigi is a mountain massif of the Alps, located in Central Switzerland. On the reverse of the pencil it says "Made by Johann Faber - Bavaria."  Perhaps Mr. Simpson started a business and had this pencil made for himself by the well known Faber at the time ... like I said, interesting search.

About Johann Faber

Johann Faber was one of three brothers who at one point worked for the Stein, Germany-based family business known as A.W. Faber Pencil Company in the second half of the 19th century. (Johann’s younger brother, Eberhard Faber, opened the first American pencil factory.) Johann left to start his own pencil business in Nuremberg in 1879. However, his company ended up merging with A.W. Faber during the global economic crisis of the late 1920s.
