My father, Roger Veley, and Jim Stauffer stopped by my table with the news that Roger had found another Heath clip pencil they wanted me to see, so off I went, this time remembering to take my loupe with me.
They led me to Jim Carpenito’s table and showed it to me. My father had already made him an offer on it, but I must have looked pretty excited about it, because he stepped aside and I brought it home. Here’s it is, posed next to the Carey:
This one is the size of a regular Eversharp pencil, but like the Carey it is a leadholder. Here’s a closeup of the clips:
But this one was made for Heath’s own account, marked only "GHW Co." and "Pat. App. For."
While I was at Jim’s table, I noticed he also had a container of spare leads. I thought that having extra leads to fit these was a good idea, so I would have bought it regardless . . .
