Ad Pencil Companies

Indiana Pencil Co and Union Pencil Co also made brand-name pencils, as shown in my Obscure U.S. Pencil Companies post.  Pencil Specialty Company was a division of American Pencil Co.  It is often ambiguous whether or not specific pencil suppliers did more than the printing, but its pencil confirms that Wilkerson-Akers did manufacture pencils.  Note that Cincinnati Pencil Company was located in Nitro, West Virginia.
