Hey there! I'm new to the forums and joined because I have lost THE ABSOLUTE BEST ERASER I've ever owned and need help in trying to find out where to buy more.
I know it had an eagle on it, was marketed as an "Artist Eraser" and something to do with American Pencil Co. I had found these online last year, but I can't find it anymore. The selling price was about$1.50-$1.75 USD. It was a tan, rubber, rectangular eraser. Very smooth, didn't shed many shavings when erasing, and didn't smear. I had picked it up at a local coffeehouse (Flying M in Nampa ID, in case anyone has gone there and knows of these erasers) during the short time they had them for sale.
Thank you for your help!

It sounds to me like an artgum erasor. Those are typically tan in color. I don't know about it coming from American Pencil Company but I do know Sanford, Sax and Prismacolor both sell versions of it. You can find them on Amazon relatively cheap.
