The No. 54 pencil was paired with the matching Dinkie No. 570 fountain pen. It could also be purchased on its own. This one is in very good condition still with the only damage being the rubbing to the plating on the pocket clip and a little stippling to the point. This is very common with these pencils as the plating was very thinly applied in the first place and would rub off with almost the first use. The Lumina purple colour shimmers and changes in the light, and the whole thing is semi-translucent. The cap has a small conical gold plated top button that holds on the gold plated pocket clip that has the usual Conway Stewart diamond at the end. There is a single gold plated cap band below the pocket clip. This is a propel-repel pencil that works by twisting the gold-plated point. It accepts 1.1mm leads, and I have installed a fresh one into the mechanism, so the pencil is ready for immediate use. The cap unscrews, and in the end is an unused-looking white eraser. Below this are a few spare 1.1mm leads. The "FOREIGN" imprint is still crisp and easily made out
I have fully serviced this pencil. It works perfectly.
