Leads come in a variety of different degrees, also known as hardness which determines how dark or light they write. We've noted below wherever were able, the degree of the leads we offer for sale. General rule of thumb to remember is that the more H you see in the degree, the harder and lighter the lead will write.
One of the great things about vintage pencils is that, no matter how old they are, they are going to write if you sharpen them. If it has an eraser, avoid it completely though. The erasers will dry out in a matter of a year or two so trust me when I tell you that a 40 year old eraser will either do nothing at all or leave a dark smudge on your paper.
