Vintage Parker True Blue Ring-top Ladies Mechanical Pencil This attractive vintage mechanical pencil is marked "Parker Made in U S.A." and was made about 1928-1929. The model was called "True Blue" and the color was called "Modernistic Blue" or "Modernistic Blue & White". There is a black band at both ends. The top and bottom are gold-color (I think they made them gold filled) and the top has a ring so a lady could wear it on a chain. It is 4 1/2" tall. Condition: The white in the pattern has turned a cream color. I think it might originally have had an eraser inside the top which is no longer there.
