A Little Extra

A few Ohio Shows ago, I found this guy:


It’s obviously an Eagle, and it bears a pretty close resemblance to one of the more common early Eagle pencils, the Number 872 “Supply”:


But that red color is a little extra nice . . . and that tip has a little extra bit of length added to it:


And at the top . . . there’s an extra attachment.  An eraser, concealed under the blind cap:


So what was this Eagle called?


The Number 873 “Extra,” of course.
