AC552 Eversharp Red Top Leads, 1.18mm, Square, Extra-Hard (2H), Per Pack of 24

Date: c1940s?

Size: Approx 1 7/16 inches by 5/16 inches.  Each lead is approx .1 3/8 inches long

A pack of vintage pencil leads from, I would think, the 1940s.  Each pack has twenty-four1 3/8 inch leads in a paper-covered wooden tube with a metal stopper at one end.  These will fit any pencil that takes the 1.18mm diameter leads.  These are rather interesting and rather unusal leads, in that they are examples of Eversharp's square leads, made to fit into their 1930s 4Square pencils.  These pencils will only take the square leads, so if you have one of these it's time to stock up on the genuine replacement leads.  If you don't have a 4Square pencil, then not to worry, as these leads will also fit most other pencils that accept the standard 1.18mm round leads.  These are extra hard grade which is about a 2H.

This is part of a consignment of old stock Everhsarp leads I have purchased.  The tubes are sealed, but please note that I have opened one of the tubes to verify the thickness and number of leads inside.  Please let me know at time of ordering if you'd rather have a sealed tube instead of the one I have opened.
