Condition & information:
First introduced in 1946, the Classic Century sleek silhouette comes as a reminder even today of the mid-century modern design. Pencil listed here is part of the Classic Century line and it has all the characteristics that the line is distinctive for which are simplicity, quality materials, and elegance. It is crafted in a thick 12K gold-filled finish over a solid steel base, and as opposed to gold plate the gold wear off on the gold-filled pens is unlikely to happen.
The pencil follows a simple yet powerful form which ends in a classic Cross top with a conical shape. It features a subtle incised guilloche line design which gives the pencil an even more refined look. The branding name of the company is seamlessly incorporated on the clip.
The top part features nice crisp engravings that read “Cross”, “1/20 12K Gold filled” and “Made in USA”. The 1/20 stands for the gold which means that the pencil is at least 1/20th gold by weight.
Due to the reflection and shine of the pencil, it is hard to depict its true high gloss in photos. The pencil is retractable and uses a very responsive continuous twist mechanism which is with a pin inside that pushes the leads out. The fine retractable tip of the pencil protects it from damage. The pencil features an eraser which can be found by removing the cap.
The pencil uses Cross 2 3/4 leads and we will provide you with several so the pencil can be used right away. The size of the leads matches the regular 0.9mm leads, so when you are all out of the original ones any 0.9mm leads will do and your pencil will be ready to be used again. The lead replacement can be made through the front cone which has a special metal mechanism inside and the leads are stored inside the barrel with a separate slot for every lead.
The ergonomically built quality of the pencil contributes for its good balance, perfect grip, and ease of use, made from high-quality materials meant to last for generations. This pencil is a great choice for your daily drafting, drawing, or sketching practices because it provides for the perfect experience with constant precise lines.
The pencil comes in mint condition perfectly preserved and ready to be used.
