This old pencil holder is a souvenir from St. Joseph, Missouri. The bullet pencil appears to have a coated paper or celluloid sleeve over the metal case that holds the wood pencil. The case has a picture of two monkeys and it reads; Reptile Garden and Monkey Jungle St. Joseph, Mo.. The cap which contains the pencil pulls off one end, reverses and then slips into the hole it came out of. On the other end is the eraser. The metal appears to be brass.
It measures about 3 ¾” long in the “concealed” position. The case is in nice condition with minimal wear and the brass has minor discoloration. The original eraser is hard and unusable.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
