13691: Cross (?) torpedo pencil: chrome plated brass, 11 cm long, brass propellors, minor scratching from clip, one small spot of plating loss (see photos); excellent quality and workmanship, uses 1.1 mm lead, no maker's marks, which is typical of Cross's novelty pencils. An earlier Cross torpedo pencil of slightly different form is shown on p. 103 of Lambert's Writing History; it may be significant that Cross made torpedo propellors during WW2.

Wahl-Eversharp made Gregg and Palmer Method pens from the 1920s on, but postwar examples are particularly uncommon, and this is the first example we have had with the original box and instructions.
