Vintage Pens: 0777: Esterbrook: J-9556
Rekindle the days when you first learned to write with a fountain pen when you purchase this handsome Esterbrook J-series pen in rich sapphire blue. Wide bodied and easy to grip, this 1950s' classic is a smooth writing vintage pen with its top-of-the-line steel 9556 nib. The nib was advertised as their fine. We restored the pen and gave it a new ink sac. It looks stunning, but when you look closer there are a series of deep but not hideous scratches below and to the left of the lever, which you might be able to see in the photo if you look very closely. The cap has some deep scratches to the right of the clip, but you cannot see them in the photo. There are no cracks, but there is plenty of lighter wear on the rest of the pen. It was a daily user and is ready for more service. The imprint is strong except for the "ster" of "Esterbrook". 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0796: Esterbrook: Purse Pen 1551
Think pink! Our pink Esterbrook Purse Pen is a very nice dark 1950s' pink, although the photo doesn't quite do it justice. No matter how we tweaked the photo it still looks more orange than it really is. We've restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. It comes with a steel 1551 "student" nib, according to Esterbrook's own advertising back in the day. There are no cracks, deep scratches or significant blemishes to this pen. The imprint is a tad faded. 11.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0783: Esterbrook: SJ-1551
Hold a thin slice of Autumn in your hand when you write with this radiant copper Esterbrook SJ fountain pen. The color on this vintage pen is superb. Plus there are no chips, cracks or deep scratches. It looks nearly perfect, as the color outshines the light surface wear. A bold imprint is clearly visible. The ink sac has been replaced, and this classic pen is ready to write. The steel 1551 nib writes a beautifully smooth fine to fine-medium line. Esterbrook marketed those 1551 nibs as "student" nibs, and millions of American school kids learned to write with an Esterbrook pen. 12.7cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0766 Esterbrook J-1551
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0766: Esterbrook: J-1551
America's stenographers and students trusted Esterbrook fountain pens more than any other brand. At least according to all the customers we've talked to, Esterbrook was the #1 teaching pen that got people using fountain pens early in their lives. This vintage pen is the wider bodied J-model. It is fully restored with a new ink sac. There are no chips, cracks or deep scratches, but there is plenty of light surface wear. The imprint is bold. The steel Esterbrook 1551 nib writes an exceptionally smooth medium line, and it was considered a "student" nib in company advertising. The clip is on straight and tight. The black plastic jewels are in perfectly good condition. An ideal pen to write with or display. 12.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0797 Esterbrook Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0797: Esterbrook: Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
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.


Vintage Pens: 0795 Esterbrook Purse Pen 2668
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0795: Esterbrook: Purse Pen 2668
Nifty doesn't even come close to describing our pink Esterbrook purse pen from the '50s. To get the color to come out right, we had to tweak the image a bit. Depending on your monitor this light-pink pen might be a little lighter or darker in real life. Nevertheless, it is exquisite. Fully restored with a fresh ink sac, this vintage pen is in great shape for collecting or using. The black jewels are perfect. The cap has no cracks. There are no deep scratches any place on the pen--only light surface wear. The imprint is strong but a little faded in the middle. The only true blemish are a few tiny little cracks sprouting around the threads where the section meets the barrel. These should be reasonably stable. The steel 2668 nib writes a medium line for general writing, according to original Esterbrook advertising. As with most steel nibs, there is a light hint of a scratch. 11.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0760 Esterbrook V-Clip
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 0760: Esterbrook: V-Clip
There are two great reasons to buy this pen. 1.) It has a rarer older V-clip cap. 2.) It has a silky smooth stainless steel 9556 nib. Ultimately, we think the pen is a marriage between the ruby red V-clip cap and a slighly bluer ruby red J-model barrel. The vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The fit between the cap and barrel is perfect. The clip is on tightly. No cracks or serious blemishes ruin this beautiful pen. Its smooth medium 9000-series nib and cap alone are worth the price. 12.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0755 Esterbrook SM-1555
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0755: Esterbrook: SM-1555
Esterbrook named its standard model pens the SM line. Simpler with a single color and a steel cap, these were as effective and reliable as the more colorful J-series and purse pens. Same inner parts and those wonderfully interchangeable nibs. Ours has a new ink sac and moderate wear from daily use. There are no cracks or chips. The imprint is strong, but weaker on the
right side. The steel 1555 Gregg nib writes a fine line with a bit of scratchy feedback, which is pretty standard in a 1555 nib and beloved by many. The steel cap screws on. The section was glued into place after the bladder was replaced, as there were problems with it staying in otherwise. 12.8cm capped.
