Made of brass and it would be about three inches in length if not bent up.
The removable tip has inside threads.

vintage pocket bullet pencil. the shorter part held a pencil with the longer part acting as a protective case. To use, you pulled the shorter part out and inserted the rounded end in the case to create a pencil long enough to hold and write with. Likely had a celluloid advertisement for a business that was wrapped around the longer part at one time.
Thanks, you may be right, however I am wondering why there were no remnants of a pencil inside the tube.

I,ve seen one of those but I can,t recall where or what it was. Could it be something similar to a lipstick tube? just a guess mind you.
