Product Information

YARD O LED AMBASSADOR CLUTCH ACTION PENCIL

Am reliably informed that this is the AMBASSADOR YoL model from the 1950s. It looks very like the RECORDER of the same period but is entirely different as this is a cap actuated clutch action repeater pencil rather than the much more common twist action Yard O Led pencil. Yard o Led went on to use the Ambassador name on four or five other pencils and fountain pens, mainly in silver, but this model was the first time they used it.

ROLLED GOLD with waves pattern. 

  

Inscription 'In appreciation from Harlow Auto Club 1955.'

Clutch action pencil operated by pushing down the cap. Mechanism is very similar to the Parker 51 pencils of the same period.

Pencil is genarally in good working order but can be a little temperamental occasionally. Takes normal YoL 1.1mm leads. Spares in barrel.

Used condition - couple of small dings/dents and other signs of usage. Please see pictures.

An unusual Yard O Led collector's item.  This is the only one I have seen with this mechanism in 20 odd years.
