auction item number 3 - number two, number two, number two

not to be confused by the number two of a different sort, this is actually a number two pencil. this was found about knee deep in the back yard. not much available to identify specifics about this item. i'm guessing it dates back to the 1950's, cause it looks very much like those pencils my older sisters used to use when they were in school. not high school, elementary, my dear watson.

all that's discernable on this piece is the lead type, number 2, and what once was the word "china", which i believe would indicate the country of manufacture. the most interesting thing about his pencil is the teeth marks. i'm thinking some dna specialist could take this and determine to whom it once belonged. probably garth brooks or wiley post.
