Oh Yeah . . . That's Why

When it comes to metal Eversharp pencils, even I have a tough time making sure I’m keeping everything straight.  When I reorganized the museum a few months ago, I went painstakingly through every one in every drawer, pulling out the ones that have such subtle nuances and putting them in one place, so I don’t mistake it for a duplicate and inadvertently cull it into the boxes of stuff I take to shows.

As I was getting ready for the Baltimore show this year, I ran across this one and couldn’t for the life of me remember what was so special about it:
