    I saw one for sale a few months back at a local fair, about 50 to 60 if I remember correctly.

    Indeed Tony, though I don't have one and as you mention by todays rates not too expensive but more than I am willing to pay for one. I'll either find one for less one day or I won't get one, simples!

    I will be keeping my eye open to complete my tin.
    Wish I had got the pencil as a kid.
    I remember thinking it was a strange pencil, half metal.... very confusing. ha ha.
