Vintage Pens: Esterbrook J Chaplain

Vintage Pens: 3402 Esterbrook J Chaplain
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $79.99
Esterbrook made special pens for the chaplaincy in the 1950s, and this is a rarer full-size J-model version! In the photo you can see the filled-in imprint of the cross. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks or deep scratches bespoil the finish of this pen. It has wear from use, but it is a good looking pen. Both end jewels are complete. The nib is an upgraded steel 2668, which was originally advertised as being for "general writing." We find it writes a surprisingly smooth fine line. 12.8cm capped.
