  1. They seem to be older than the merge of Conté with Gilbert-Blanzy-Poure (in 1960, but Gil­bert had already bought Conté in 1950).

    The fact that their hard­ness is HB-n°2 might indi­cate a later production…but really here I’m just gues­sing, since maybe they were desti­ned to the export mar­ket („made in France“ and not „fab­ri­qué en France“)?

    Inte­res­tin­gly too, the „Indiana“ lin­eup, com­ing from Conté, was con­ti­nued to almost the end of French made pen­cils era by Conté/Gilbert/Bic, whe­reas most of the late offe­ring of Bic/Conté was issued from the Gilbert/Blanzy-Poure ori­gi­nal lin­eup. I’m not much of a pen­cil his­to­rian, but I wish Conté name was kept in the pen­cil production…I also wish I were more inte­res­ted in pen­cils when I was young, there was some color­ful offe­rings from these now defunct brands!

  2. Matt, thank you for your com­ment and these details! So these pen­cils could be 50 years old. – I have also loo­ked for the „Indiana“ name and was supri­sed how many varia­ti­ons exis­ted. I won­der why Conté has choo­sen this name!

  3. The typo­gra­phy and design of old pen­cils and its con­tai­ners fasci­na­tes me!

    Thank you very much for sharing this enor­mous wealth of infor­ma­tion on wri­ting instruments.
