Vintage Pens: Esterbrook LJ-2668

Vintage Pens: 2055 Esterbrook LJ-2668
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Here's a curio that we found. This is an Esterbrook SJ model pen (long and slender) with an LJ price sticker (shortest of the Esterbrook J series pens). Maybe it was a pair that got married before we got it. We restored it with a fresh new ink sac. There are no cracks, and the pen has some light wear. The 2668 steel nib writes a very smooth broad line when held at a very low angle of attack, but it is very scratchy at a high angle of attack. 12.9cm.
