I really feel like bidding on it, but Luanne said she'd kill me.

Ha! It’s still only (only?) $250. But I’d want some better evidence that it’s a Thoreau pencil — that’s why I put the description in quotation marks. The explanation that someone got them from a guy whose father got them from the Thoreau factory isn’t really enough.
