It's a Challenge to Find them Like This.

Here's something else that turned up at the Baltimore Show - too bad it was Joe Nemecek that found it before I did (boy, he was quick!):


The one complaint I have about the Baltimore Show is the poor lighting, which had me laying on the floor in the aisle to take this shot against the carpet, which was the only background I could find that would bring out the color.  But anyway. . .

What makes this one unusual is the desk taper - a rare find in itself that will cost you a hundred dollars if the seller you are talking to knows what he's got.  But also unusual is what it's attached to:


This is the first time I've seen a Challenger pencil with a desk taper.  Good eye, Joe!
