Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2060: Esterbrook: SM (?)
Although we call this an Esterbrook SM, we are not convinced that is what it is. It really looks like a cross between an SM and M2. Either way, we are reasonably sure it was from the late 1940s or 1950s. The cornflower blue section and barrel have seen heavy use, with plenty of scratches. The cap is in surprisingly good condition with only a few tiny marks on the back top of the pen, opposite the clip. We restored it with a new ink sac. Its steel 9668 nib was considered a top-of-the-line nib upgrade that was advertised as being a medium for "general writing." True to its advertising, it is a very nice medium writer with a hint of feedback but no scratch. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2057: Esterbrook: LJ-2668
Esterbrook fountain pens taught an entire generation how to write with an ink pen. Babyboomers were likely required by their schools to write with an Esterbrook fountain pen. Inexpensive and easily customized, pens such as this Esterbrook LJ come with an easily changed steel nib to fit any writing style or need. The nibs simply unscrewed from the pen and were replaced for less than a dollar. We restored this pale-green pen with a new ink sac. The pen was a daily user and features some wear, including a few small stains, which you can see at the tail of the pen in the photo. Click the headline for a closer look. The cap is a few shades of green different from the barrel. Possibly married. The steel 2668 nib was advertised as a "general writing" point, which writes a smooth medium when held at the sweet spot angle. No cracks. The clip isn't quite making contact with the barrel, where it slips into your pocket. 11.9cm capped.

Era: 1960-1979

Vintage Pens: 2054: Esterbrook: Cartridge Pen
By the early 1960s, disposable plastic ink cartridges were all the rage. Esterbrook began creating their own, and this is one of their cartridge-only fountain pens. Sleek and stylish this deep red vintage pen has some light wear but is in good condition. An empty vintage cartridge is in the pen so you can refill it with a syringe to use this pen on a daily basis. Its nib is a steel 2556 that writes a firm extra-fine line with a little feedback. The section has two small cracks where the nib screws into the section. 13.8cm capped.
