President Coolidge’s personally-owned and -used mechanical pencil. Goldtone Eversharp pencil measures 5.25″ long and is handsome and artistically hand-engraved below the clip, “C. Coolidge.” Accompanied by an October 14, 1983, letter of authenticity, on a White House card, from Lillian Rogers Parks, who was a best selling author as well as housekeeper and seamstress at the White House for over 30 years, from Hoover through Eisenhower, which reads, in part: “The goldtone Eversharp pencil was owned and used by President Calvin Coolidge…I worked for the President and Mrs. Coolidge at the White House. When they left and Hoover came in, in 1929, the Coolidges gave my Mother, Maggie Rogers and me, several of their personal possessions.” In fine condition. A documented writing instrument—of any president—is scarce to say the least.
