    Nice finds Joe!! I have dug a few lead pencils. My understanding is they would take charcoal from the fires and rub the "pencils" in the charcoal and write on paper. Writing a note back home before going into battle-It doesn't get any more personal than that. HH, Quindy.

    Actually you don't need the charcoal as it is lead; take it to paper and it writes just as if you were holding a No.# 2 lead pencil in your hand. Great find Joe!
