This is a nice example of the Imperial Propelling Pencil made by Sheaffer. It dates from the mid 50's and was made in the USA. The pencil is finished in Blue with a deep gold filled cap band. The Valiant was one of the Sheaffer Snorkel filling pens and this is the matching pencil.
The pencil uses standard 0.9mm leads which are still readily available, the original eraser is still intact but it has gone a little hard.
The pencil is in good condition with only light wear marks and scratches.
