Vintage Pens: Esterbrook Dollar Pen

Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $79.99
Esterbrook really began its rise as a powerhouse pen company in the 1930s and '40s with the famous Esterbrook Dollar Pen. Much more affordable during those lean years than Parker and Sheaffer, Esterbrook offered a good all-purpose pen with the incredible feature of interchangeable nibs! Just screw a new one in for a whole new look to your writing. Esterbrook was previously more famous for its nibs, and this pen offered close to 3 dozen different writing tips! Ours comes with the steel 1554 GREGG nib, which was made for practitioners of the Gregg shorthand method! Thus, we think this restored vintage pen once belonged to a secretary or stenographer. You can see a scuff to the right of the clip in the photo. Otherwise this pen has no cracks and only light wear. You'll write a firm, extra-extra fine line, which can get a little scratchy with too much pressure. 12.1cm capped.
