AG Days

Many BHR pencils from the mid-late 1800's bear the imprint "AG Days Pat Aug 10 58". The patent refers to the BHR casing on the pencil. Austin G. Days wasn't actually a pencil case maker, but he was the holder of a U.S. patent of that date, which claims "improvements" over Nelson Goodyear's BHR casing material. A.G. Days was a cousin to Nelson Goodyear (the ā€œGā€ in AG Days stands for Goodyear, his middle name).
