principle. It was made by a guy out of CA named Elliot Landes. Anyone ever
heard of him?/
The case is a block of Cocobolo(?) 1-1/8" x 5/8" x 5-3/4" and sort of oval
in cross section. It has two holes bored longitudinally about 1/2" in
diameter. One hole holds a pen and the other a pencil. There are two
buttons at one end of the case held in place by a brass pin. When you press
the buttons either the pen or the pencil are ejected.
I picked this up at an auction for less than $10. I suspect the set is
worth a little money; but haven't been able to find out anything about it.
