Vintage Pens: 1398: Esterbrook: LJ-9556
Copper is our favorite color among the Esterbrook line from the 1950s. This is a slightly thinner and shorter pen known as the Esterbrook LJ model. It has been fully restored with a new ink sac and a new screw-in nib. The stainless steel 9556 nib was originally advertised as the company's top-of-the-line "fine writing" nib, meaning a fine line. We concur that it does write a fine line with only a hint of feedback, which is normal in steel nib of this vintage. The vintage pen's radiant finish shines through the light wear. The imprint is strong and there are no cracks. The only real flaw is that the top jewel has a chip missing, and the clip doesn't rest flush against the cap, as you can see in the photo. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1416: Esterbrook: J-2669
Esterbrook fountain pens taught the Baby Boomers how to write with a true "ink pen." Highly popular student pens and pens for professional secretaries, stenographers and journalists, Esterbrook was beloved for its vibrant colors and interchangeable nibs. Our fully restored vintage pen comes with a steel 2668 nib, which was advertised as a nib for "general writing." This one writes a fine line well with a little drag. The pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The radiant mint green shines through the wear and mild scratching nicely. The imprint is a little faded but legible. There are two nicks on the clip, which you can see better if you click the headline. Very nice writer, overall. Plus, the J size is easier to write with, as it is wider and causes less cramping of the hand. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1407: Esterbrook: J-2668
Esterbrook fountain pens were the go-to vintage pens during the 1950s. Inexpensive and dependable, students and offices bought them by the truckload. They were easy to maintain, and the nibs were interchangeable. We fully restored this black J-model pen with a new ink sac. The J-models are wider than the other Esterbrook models and a little easier to hold. The steel nib is a 2668 model. It writes a smooth fine line and was advertised as a nib for "general writing." The cap and barrel are a little worn but are crack free. Great for daily writing. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0797: Esterbrook: Purse Pen
For all of our Esterbrook fans, here's a classic Esterbrook purse pen in white. It is more of an egg shell, as it isn't the pristine white it was 60 years ago. Nevertheless, it is a nice vintage pen. There are plenty of scratches and nicks. The cap lip is fraught with cracks, but they are pretty common in this purse pens. We have restored it with a new ink sac. The nib is a rarer 1555 GREGG nib. It writes a medium line, and there is a bit of scratch on the inverse downstroke. These old steel nibs usually have a bit of scratch, which endears them to some users and drives others bonkers. The white end cap jewels are likewise rare and in very good condition. 11cm capped.
