The pencil has a 10ct gold stepped bottom band & a swivelling suspension loop & ring on the top. By pulling the bottom band the pencil telescopically extends & the pencil tip extends from inside. The pencil tip has a twist action which extends & retracts the pencil lead mechanism. Both mechanisms are in excellent working order. The pencil comes complete with a pencil lead in the tip.
