Pleased to Meet You

It's always a pleasure to receive an introduction to a new-to-me brand.  This time it is Marx Finstone's New York City pen and pencil company that created this 5 & 1/4 inch Eclipse.  My new pal is a 1930s model with the patented 2-piece clip, which gives the patent date, 9-18-23, shows the Eclipse logo in a circle, and also says Eclipse in caps.

It is a flat-top with a black cap and gold trim.

The cap has an eraser under it.  It is a rear-drive pencil with the larger 1.1 mm lead,
and yellow-green and black celluloid marble case.
If the top were pointed, you'd think of a ball clip Sheaffer Balance; 
they are similar in substance and style.

It's good to be back in New York!
