Re: An "Autopoint" Pencil : permitted?

These pencils are still being made. This is probably a .9mm pencil. It is also available in 1.1 mm lead size. In the 1950's and 60's, .9mm lead was considered to be a fine point. I think they have a two color pencil with a .5mm point at the bottom and a .9mm red point at the top. Believe it or not the .5mm end operates by twisting.
