Nelson Goodyear

Many BHR pencils from the mid-late 1800’s bear the imprint ““Goodyears Pat May 6 51””. The patent refers to the BHR casing on the pencil. Nelson Goodyear wasn’t actually a pencil case maker, but he was the holder of a U.S. patent of that date for his BHR casing material. Nelson Goodyear was a cousin to AG. days.
