Reddit user stu–dying received these scans from the folks at Staedtler and agreed to share here. So cool!

You’re awesome. Thank you.
I’m just an enthusiast trying to make as many people as possible get an interest for mps in general, specially Staedtler ones .
Amazing stuff, thanks for sharing!!!
At this point, nothing in pencildom makes me happier than new catalog discoveries!
Not sure I saw this page in your collection? When I first got my 777 15, I didn’t realize it had a lead cushion feature until reading the description in this page. It actually stinks worse than the Kuru Toga and as far as I’m concerned makes the pencil totally unusable.
Whoa, I thought the lead cushioning was related to the automatic mechanism. Turns out, it’s just an extra “feature” that turns the pencil from royalty into a plebe
Sadly the micromatic is a plebe regardless of the lead cushioning. The auto mechanism itself is fairly unreliable and it’s a lottery to find one that works properly. Even when it does work properly, it’s nowhere near as smooth as other high-end automatics of the era. As someone who started by collecting Staedtlers a couple of decades ago, it is a huge disappointment.
Yep, that’s another catalogue, they only sent me the ones they had available.
Depends if you like it, I’d buy it.
Great catalog info!
I wonder… do any of you guys know when Staedtler shifted from having the lead hardness indicator in a cut-out window on the clip ring, to indicators enameled onto the clip ring with 2 arrowheads on the body for selection?
Actually, the indicators on the recent pencil might be engraved on the ring. A different photo seems to show that.
