Many of you likely know Michael Leddy from his blog Orange Crate Art. His photo features a Blackwing box from the lesser-seen Faber-Castell era. He writes:

More a stash than a collection, it’s a box of Blackwings I bought when any office-supplies store with the right catalogue could order them. I have a few stubs as well.

Something I never noticed before taking this photograph: the gap between “Woodclinched” and “Blackwing.” Perhaps the photo first showed the Eberhard Faber name, later scratched out for Faber Castell.

Thanks to Michael for sharing his stash with us.
