90’s era Staedtler Mars-780 lead holder

Staedtler Mars-780

Found this old friend while sorting through some old art supplies in my home office last night.

Probably purchased it between late ’96 and ’98 for a drafting course. Staedtler makes their carbon lead for this ranging from 4H to 4B and I forgot how much I loved sketching with this thing.

At closer inspection I rember the time it spent some time sitting in an ink spill in an old ‘Art Box.’
