The Riedell: today at Leadhead's
Permalink Closed


The Riedell is one of the more interesting pencils. I have no idea who made it or when, though everything about it screams mid-1920s (including the one example I have in the same royal blue and bronze celluloid Conklin used on some Enduras).

And with the nose removed, I'm really not sure how these ever worked, either:

Today at Leadhead's, a couple more turn up, one with a price sticker:

As always, more information welcome!

Question for admin: looks like you are using the joomla platform for this forum, but in my control panel the button to insert links is disabled. Am I doing something wrong?

Great Stuff Jon!
Nice collection!

You should be able to insert links (as well as images). When you reply to a post (or start one), use the "advanced editor" button to get the full panel to insert items. DWL and chthulhu also help run this place! Feel free to ask any of us!

Regards,
Frank
