No, copying pencils weren't chinagraph. They looked like an ordinary pencil with a lead (graphite) in them, but also some sort of indelible dye. I can remember them - you really couldn't rub their marks out with an india-rubber. I seem to recall that they were banned at my school - I can't remember why. You can still buy copying pencils, but their general use declined with the invention of the ball-point pen.
