A twist on the Rite-Rite "Threadline"

I don't remember where I came across this one, which drives me a little bit nuts since it's only been in the last month or so.  It's the one at the bottom, shown next to a Rite-Rite "Threadline" pencil:


In my mind, I've got to group this with the "Threadline" family, although mechanically it is nothing of the sort.   It more closely resembles the Lipic unbranded pencils that are such a common sight (more on those later), but when I look at the tip, the clip, the profile and the color:


it's definitely all in the family, isn't it?

Mr Veley: Would you consider selling a Dixon rite-rite threadline viewpoint? Name your price. I'm fasinated with that model from back in the 40's. The story is too long to tell here. tatenow

Hey Jack, send me an email at jveley@jonathanveley.com and tell me the story. I'll look and see if I have a duplicate.
