So with the latest shipment of Iwako Ice Cream Japanese erasers, we noticed that the color of the cone was a new shade of brown. The Japanese eraser cones on the left and right are the older versions. The cone in the middle is the most recent.
Right now the most recent Japanese eraser cones are available only as series sets but as we replenish our single Iwako Ice Cream Cone Japanese erasers the new cone color can be had individually.
We know for the hard core Japanese eraser collectors the new color cone is a must have. For the casual collector, we suspect the feeling is more who cares?
