Manufacturers of Quality Masonry Products since 1946 READY MIXED CONCRETE Scranton, S. C. - Phone 2711 - 2721 Lake City, S. C. - 8-2651" Good, but not as a functioning pencil. Item #20584
This charming pencil has a transparent end cap filled with a yellow liquid that allows a tiny cement truck suspended in the liquid to move back and forth as you rock the pencil. The pencil's lower barrel does not attach securely to the pen. It does not appear to be functional as a pencil, but it's a wonderful piece of advertising history.
