Save big on a rare Canadian Esterbrook J-model fountain pen if you don't mind some heavy damage to the black tail jewel. We've restored this smokey blue pen with a new ink sac. It has no cracks but some wear on the cap and barrel. The clip isn't flush with the side of the cap, as you can see in the photo. Click the headline font for close ups. The steel 2968 nib was originally advertised as a broad nib. This one writes more of a medium, but you have to find the sweet spot, which cants a bit to the left, making us wonder if this was the pen of a lefty. These nibs are interchangeable and screw in and out, if you have an Esterbrook nib you want to use. The imprint is faded, but you can still make out the "Made in Canada." 12.8cm capped.
