The “Popular” pencil mechanism was much like an inversion of the Lund pencil; ie. the lead advance is done via an internal helical mechanism that simply “pushes” the lead forward. This allowed for much longer leads to be used and the Popular pencil generally used a much thicker lead than most other pencils.
This set is comprised of a pencil as well as a dip pen, both in the “Popular” design. Both are in excellent working condition; no dents or dings.
