more random eBay pencils

My favourite here - and definitely the most interesting, I think, is the Wolff's Pencil - Wolff's SELECTED Spanish Granite. 
Spanish Graphite ?  Was that a thing?  Cumberland Graphite, yes, Siberian Graphite - of course - but Spanish Graphite ?

eBay purchases - Copying Pencils

A good haul on eBay this month : a very impressive set of Copying Pencils

A lot of pencils there that I haven't seen before, I am very pleased with these.
The one that intrigues me most is the purple/black Staedtler Tradition -- I have never before seen a Tradition that doesn't bear the familiar black/red colour schemes.  I checked Bob Truby and was satisfied to see that he doesn't have one
