A sleek gold filled vintage mechanical pencil with light etched wave design has been added to a new 29" gold plated link chain. This is not a reproduction, this is an authentic vintage mechanical pencil. At the top, the pencil is marked "Scheaffer's Pat. Nov 5 '18 Pat'd Pend'g Gold Filled" which was the design company and "Gold Filled" which is the material and gold content. Measures 4" long. A "Mad Men" inspired necklace and a show stopper, that's for sure! The pencil is in very good condition with only tiny signs of wear and tear overall. There is no lead in the pencil and I'm unsure how it works.
