Matching the autumn leaves, our Esterbrook LJ is a lovely copper color. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. The model LJ meant Long J-model in the world of vintage Esterbrook pens. Ours is in excellent condition without any cracks or deep scratches. A nice crisp imprint. Perhaps it has a little wear from use but nothing serious. Its 1555 Gregg nib was intended for the Gregg shorthand writing method. It is a surprisingly smooth nib. Gregg nibs were often used by secretaries, journalists and anyone taking dictation. 12.8cm capped.
