BHR pencil with gold trim by Newton Kurtz. Barrel imprinted “Newton, Kurtz, & Co”, along with “Goodyears Pat May 6 ’51”. Imprints are crisp and overall condition is excellent (in working order). Newton, Kurtz was only in business for 2 years, from January, 1865-May, 1867, so this is a fairly rare example.
"Newton, Kurtz, & Co", "Goodyears Pat May 6 '51"
