In 1929, Dallas in particular.

I found this (cartridge) pencil this morning at a yard sale for .25 cents.....All your Texas belongs to us.

Just out of curiosity I looked-up what Dallas looked like in 1929....Bigger than I thought it would be.

Oddly enough when you put the "bullet" end inside the "cartridge" it's pretty easy to write with.

I've seen all manner or these things, pens, pencil, knife blade, even a lighter inside. Never saw a dated one though.

Made by Texas Nov. Co., Hillsboro, TX.

I bet they would shut down Trafalgar Square in London if it was on the ground there.

TSA would shit a brick, IF they found it.

Cool find.

I want one....but with more ink.

Also, it was 5.56 that blew his mind.

I was showing it to a friend this morning and he thought it was a Carcano case too.

LOL...He said they really like the Carcano in TX for some reason.....I reminded him of the date.
