Vintage Pens: 0118 Esterbrook Grey Cartridge
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $10.00
Vintage Pens: 0118: Esterbrook: Grey Cartridge
What is this Esterbrook model? We aren't afraid to say we have no idea. It is a cartridge filling pen from either the late 1950s or early '60s. It comes with two dried original cartridges. We have no idea if the pen will fit any modern cartridges. The pen is in pretty good shape and comes with a steel 2668 nib. It writes a slightly scratchy fine line. 13.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0119 Esterbrook Grey Pump
Filling Mechanism: Pump/TouchDown Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $10.00
Vintage Pens: 0119: Esterbrook: Grey Pump
We have absolutely no idea what this Esterbrook pen model is or how to restore it. We don't even know if it was made in the '50s or early 1960s. It seems to have a touchdown style filler like a Sheaffer, but we cannot open up this pen and do any restoration on it. This pen is a curio for which we hope to find a good home. It has a slightly bent 2556 steel nib that is interchangeable. 13.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0953 Esterbrook LJ-1550
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $29.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0953: Esterbrook: LJ-1550
Copper tones shine through on this heavily worn but still handsome Esterbrook LJ model vintage pen. We have restored it with a fresh new ink sac, and at a distance of a couple feet it looks great. There are no cracks, but there are a lot of heavy scratches, including a portion that looks as if it were rubbed with sandpaper. Below the clip, in the photo, you can see an odd bit of discoloration. The cap is darker than the barrel, and we suspect it is a pen made of a happy marriage. The steel 1550 nib was advertised originally as a bookkeeping nib. It writes a somewhat scratchy but consistent fine-medium line. These nibs are famously interchangeable, if you have a better replacement the price is right. 12.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0761 Esterbrook V-Clip 1550
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0761: Esterbrook: V-Clip 1550
Esterbrook fans will rejoice at this rare V-clip junior fountain pen. Its ruby barrel and cap are clear of cracks and major wear. The strong imprint reads on two lines "R. Esterbrook JCo. / Made in U.S.A." It has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The steel 1550 nib was originally marketed as a bookkeeping nib and writes an exceptionally smooth needle extra-fine line! 11cm capped.

SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0788: Esterbrook: SJ-9668
Possibly the most popular pen of the 1950s, Esterbrook fountain pens taught millions of students and stenographers the joy of writing with an ink pen. Our Esterbrook SJ model in sapphire blue is an extremely handsome model. The barrel is a little darker blue than the cap. The barrel imprint indicates this is actually a CANADIAN-made model. We didn't even know they made Esterbrooks in Canada until we saw this pen. The imprint is strong and there are no cracks, deep scratches or dents. It only has light surface wear. The ink sac has been replaced, and the pen is in excellent working order. The steel 9668 nib is the company's high-end smooth medium writer. Click the headline to see it close up. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0787 Esterbrook J-2556
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0787: Esterbrook: J-2556
Stenographers and students loved the fresh colors and affordable dependability of Esterbrook fountain pen in the 1950s. This is their wider bodied J model, which is a little easier to grip if skinny pens hurt your hand when you write. The still-vibrant minty green finish on the pen masks some heavier pitting and scratches on the cap and barrel. The pen has been fully restored with a new bladder. There are no cracks, and the imprint is strong except for the middle of "Esterbrook." The steel 2556 nib was advertised as being a "firm fine." Our vintage nib writes nice medium line, even though there is a bit of a hitch or scratch as the pen writes...fairly common for a steel nib of the era. The pen also includes an Esterbrook CLICK pencil. We know little about pencils, but clicks were fairly rare in the '50s. This one has movement in the click, but it doesn't seem to advance any lead. Pen measures 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0785 Esterbrook SJ-2556
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0785: Esterbrook: SJ-2556
The ever stalwart Esterbrook fountain pen trained millions of Americans how to write with a true "ink pen." This Esterbrook SJ model is long and slender. It is a classic black pen, but it has some surface wear, including a deep obvious scratch running through the strong Esterbrook imprint. The rest of the pen is in great shape. No cracks, tight clip, both jewels intact. This vintage pen has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. The steel 2556 nib was considered an upgrade in the day and was designed for "firm fine writing." We note that it writes more of a medium line that is fairly smooth for a steel nib. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0932 Esterbrook Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $64.99
Vintage Pens: 0932: Esterbrook: Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
Most Esterbrook purse pens are in rough shape these days. This lavender model is exquisite. There are no cracks, dents, chips or deep scratches. It has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. The jewels are perfect, and the clip is on tight. This vintage pen's imprint is strong. It comes with a steel model 1555 GREGG nib. It was advertised as a shorthand nib, which makes sense, as these pens were extremely popular among stenographers. It writes a nice fine line for a steel nib. 11.2cm capped.
