Very cool and uncommon in NZ, US Boston Ranger 55 pencil sharpener. First produced and sold in 1955.

This particular sharpener is among the first Boston Ranger 55's to have been made.

It was manufactured by C Howard Hunt Pen Co in Camden New Jersy from 1955 up until 1958, when they moved their factory operations to Statesville NC.

Metallic grey paint is in reasonably good condition, although scratches and a few signs of wear reflect it's age and previous use.

One small bit of paint on the shavings caddy. Could be removed but I feel it's part of the sharpener's story.

Sharpens fine, but definitely needs to be secured to a surface for best results.

Can be mounted to a table as well as the wall. (Not at same time obviously!)

Multiple pencil sizes may be sharpened.

Pencil point may be sharpened to 3 preferences.

Originating from, and made in the US.

** also listed, 2 sets of "brand new" replacement blades available (same age as sharpener but never used).
