YOU ARE BIDDING FOR THIS CHARMING SMALL MECHANICAL/PROPELLING PENCIL (the actual barrel is approx. 2" long). WHICH IS IN VERY PLEASING CONDITION OVERALL BUT WHICH DOES APPEAR TO REQUIRE ATTENTION TO THE LEAD "PUSHER"

AS YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THIS SECTION PROTRUDES MUCH MORE THAN I THINK IT IS SUPPOSED TO BUT IT WILL ONLY RETRACT SO FAR (approx. 1" is left poking out before it becomes stuck)... I THINK THAT THE SMALL SECTION AT THE TASSLED END IS MEANT TO ROTATE AND THE LEAD IS GRADUALLY REVEALED HOWEVER THIS SECTION DOES NOTHING, IT JUST TURNS AND THE THIN SECTION JUST PUSHES AND PULLS OUT FREELY

IT IS A BIT OF A MYSTERY BECAUSE THE THREADED SECTION IS ACTUALLY AS LONG AS THE BARREL ITSELF SO I CAN'T QUITE UNDERSTAND HOW IT WORKS??
IT IS QUITE DIFFICULT TO EXPLAIN SO I HOPE THIS MAKES SENSE... IN SIMPLE TERMS IF YOU HOLD BOTH ENDS OF THE ITEM THE THIN SECTION JUST PUSHES IN AND OUT

IT IS A REAL SHAME AS THIS IS A SUPER LITTLE PIECE

IT IS STAMPED ON THE BARREL "LIFE - LONG" STERLING SILVER (Pat. No. 439906)

BECUASE OF THIS "PROBLEM" THE ITEM IS SOLD AS SHOWN AND WITHOUT RETURN

PLEASE CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS AND FEEL FREE TO CONTACT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR INFO... TO BE HONEST THE MORE I LOOK AT THE CONSTRUCTION OF THIS THE LESS SURE I AM AS TO HOW IT OPERATES BUT WITH THE GREAT LOW START PRICE IT IS SURELY WORTH A BID JUST BECAUSE IT IS SOLID SILVER

THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK
