A Keen Pair

A few weeks ago I was the successful bidder on a lot which included a pair of Keen-Point pencils.  Keen-Point was a subbrand for Dur-O-Lite, and examples don't come around very often.  These were particularly nice . . .

NOTE:  This article is now included in the print version of The Leadhead's Pencil Blog, available anywhere you buy books, or also from The Legendary Lead Company.

To order, here's the link:  Volume 1 at Legendary Lead Company

I have a Keen Point Dur-o-Lite mechanical pencil. I was wondering if it was worth anything? I would be glad to send you pics of it. Also, if it does not have any particular value, I can send it to you since you seem to enjoy pencils.

Thanks for the comment, Erik. I always welcome pictures of pencils - never know what will turn up. I do have a Keen Point Dur-O-Lite OCR pencil in the hopper for a future article, but I'd like to see yours before I write it.
