One Heckuva Imprint

This one turned up at the Ohio Show - I can’t remember who had it:

It’s an Edison with a wonderful imprint:

This one appears to have the lines of an early Rex product, which I would expect, since I’ve found an Edison from the “four horsemen” family of Rex pencils - see  It also has a mysterious portal on the side of the barrel:

It’s similar to the one found near the bottom of the barrel of an Artcraft I wrote about some time ago – also from the Rex family (that article was posted at

On the cap of the Edison, there’s what I believe is a model number assigned by Rex itself:

“20ER.”  Suppose this was a Rex model 20, made for Edison (E), in a ringtop (R)?
