Description: All of these pencils are the pull out of a case type and two have a celluloid case around them. The Tri-Chrome Smith Premier left may picture a Model No. 2 that was improved in 1905 to take a tri-chrome ribbon which enabled secretaries to use 3 different colors without ribbon changing. One of the S-P has a June 6, 1905 patent date.
The Model 10 Smith Premier right was made from 1908-1913.
The very small 1 3/4″? long pencil, top left, is an Eberhard Faber.
