This is a "Mark I" model

The girl who played the Daughter in "Coach" once had her demo reels
tapes on the shelf that this pencil has been stored on. Also, Garrett
Brown, the inventor of the Steadicaam, once briefly glanced at the
pencil in question.

This pencil was acquired already sharpened

The Pencil would not qualify for OSHA safety standards if it was
sharpened in the E.A. Style, so we are unable to offer them to our US

No batteries are require for normal use of the pencil All other uses
would immediately void the warranty.

Can you tell me a bit more about the pencil you are offering?
1: What kind of wood is the pencil?
I just spoke with the company, and they tell me it is California
incense cedar wood.
2: Did you ever put it in your mouth ore somewhere els?
3: Did you write any bad checks with this pencil?
Has never been used!
4: Do you ship to the Netherlands?
I can make an exception for you, yes, but you pay actual shipping
5: Is there any certificate with it?
there is no certificate, but here is some more info.
Thanks so much.

The information I have, which came down from corporate this morning, is
that it is a "classic". It appears that this pencil model is now sold
under the PaperMate name. Since the pencils that have the original,
gold lettered logo "Sanford" are no longer available, I assumed it was
a Mark I, but it is not labeled as such, nor is it labeled Mark II. I
apologize for any confusion. Based on the response to my auction, it is
still a desirable pencil.

We are slowly getting into Steadicam prices here.... and there are still 3 days to go...
And we are complaining about $12.- screws... or was it $12'000.- Toilet seats...?
Let me know who the unfortunate last bidder will be.....
Would love to see Jon's face thought...
