Vintage Pens: 1472: Esterbrook: J-9048
Get a bargain on a wider bodied Esterbrook J model pen. Smokey blue and just as true, this pen shows some heavy wear from a life well spent in service. There are some scratches, the clip is a little bent and the tail jewel is chipped. The good news is that the ink sac has been replaced and that it comes with a slightly rarer 9048 nib that writes a very smooth fine line. No cracks! Great for continued daily use. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1505 Esterbrook J-2668
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1505: Esterbrook: J-2668
Minty green makes this full-size Esterbrook J model fountain pen an attractive addition to any collection. We have fully restored this pen with a new ink sac. The pen has some wear from use, but the dynamic green design distracts from the flaws. No cracks! The steel 2668 nib writes a smooth fine line. The 2000 series nib was a step up from the 1000 series. The 2668 was originally advertised as a "general writing" nib. Strong imprint. Black jewels in good shape. Clip spins but is on tight. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0598 Esterbrook SJ-2556
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0598: Esterbrook: SJ-2556
One of the highest selling pens of the 1950s, Esterbrook doesn't often get its due today. However, it was commonly found in countless schools and offices throughout the United States. A simple lever-filling fountain pen with interchangeable nibs to suit every writing style for a quarter...how could it go wrong? This long, slender SJ model has been fully restored with a new ink sac. There is plenty of wear from daily use, but there are no cracks. It writes with a steel 2556 nib for a medium line. It is very smooth on the sweet spot with a low angle of attack on the page. The more perpendicular the angle, the more feedback you get. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1504 Esterbrook SM-9460
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $29.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1504: Esterbrook: SM-9460
The standard model Esterbrook was aptly called the SM. This Esterbrook SM has a black barrel and steel cap. We restored it with a fresh ink sac. It has a weak barrel imprint and a perfect tail "jewel." The cap jewel is missing part of an edge. The steel nib is one of the high-end ones. The 9460 writes a buttery smooth medium line. A quintessential 1950s' fountain pen. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1474 Esterbrook J-9550 Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $59.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1474: Esterbrook: J-9550 Set
School's back in session, and you want the pen-and-pencil set that taught Baby Boomers how to write with a fountain pen in the 1950s. Esterbrook pens--due to their reliability, price and easily replaced and customizeable nibs--were often required by high schools, technical school and shorthand schools! This set has been fully restored. The vintage pen has a new ink sac and a top-tier 9550 nib. Originally advertised as a extra fine, it writes an extra fine! It is pretty smooth for a steel, vintage extra fine. It has a little wear, but the sapphire-blue finish is so radiant, you really won't notice. No cracks, strong imprint. The pencil is likewise radiant, but it has a long crack in the cap. You will never see it without looking for it, but it is there. The pencil still works well and comes loaded with leads. Both clips are on tight, and the black-plastic jewels are whole. The pen is a J-model, which is the largest Esterbrook with regard to girth. Pen measures 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1503 Esterbrook SM-1550
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 1503: Esterbrook: SM-1550
In theory, the Esterbrook SM (Standard Model) should be more common than the J model, but we don't see nearly as many. Using different colors and steel caps that snap on, Esterbrook SM fountain pens are unique from their counterparts. This one has been restored with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel show some wear. The worst of it is the badly chipped black cap jewel and a bit of a bulge where the lever ring is inside the barrel. It comes with a 1550 steel nib that writes an extra-fine line without feedback, if you know how to maintain a light touch. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1201 Esterbrook Esterbrook J-1551
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 1201: Esterbrook: Esterbrook J-1551
Esterbrook pens were the less glamorous work horses of the 1950s. Secretaries, stenographers and reporters all relied heavily on their light-weight, easy-to-use features that also included an interchangeable steel nib. It was easy to change the way the nib wrote or to replace a broken one, as they screwed out. We have fully restored this full-size J-model Esterbrook fountain pen. It has a fresh ink sac. It also comes with a steel 1551 nib. It writes a descent fine line with just a touch of pressure. The cap and barrel are heavily worn with some scars from a well-used life. However, there are no cracks, and this reliable instrument is ready for more daily use. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1473 Esterbrook LJ-1555 Gregg
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1473: Esterbrook: LJ-1555 Gregg
Esterbrook fountain pens taught a generation of American's how to write with an "ink pen." Extremely attractive pens from the 1950s, this is a ruby red Esterbrook LJ. The candy red design overpowers the wear, which you can see if you look closely. The double jewels are in good condition. The clip is a little sprung, as you can see in the photo. It comes with a specialized steel 1555 Gregg nib for the Gregg handwriting/stenography method. It writes a medium line with some scratch, as these 1000 series nibs were famous for. The LJ models were slightly shorter and more slender than the J models. It has been fully restored with a new ink sac. 12cm capped.
