If you've seen one Cross Century pencil, you've seen them all, correct?

Cross Century has been around since 1948 or so.  "First year" pencils have a ball end on the clip.  The ring tops show up occasionally, especially on ebay.  Saturday, I found my first ever demi/vest pocket pencil.  In sterling, too.  Full size pencil at the bottom, for comparison.

Not sure the sterling ring top (top) is a Century.  It's marked aXt rather than Cross.  It's older than the GF example in that it's not made with an eraser (nor is it supposed to come apart, I discovered after non-destructively removing the cap....)

Nice find. I don't know much about old Cross pens/pencils, but I do admire them.

I have some tiny Cross pencils. Cute little buggers. Top two are sterling, others are GF. Not sure what years mine are from though.
