Esterbrook Nurse's Pens are highly sought vintage writing instruments. Replicating a nurse's uniform in the 1950s, these white pens are nice editions. The red cap and tail jewels are nearly perfect without any chips or cracks. Aside from a little discoloring to a cream color, this vintage pen is in excellent condition without any cracks or other major blemishes. We replaced the ink sac, and the J-bar, which had cracked and fallen out. We made our own J-bar out of brass flashing. It works well, but it does allow the lever to dangle a little when upside down. You get an original Esterbrook box and a steel 2556 nib in the pen. It writes a nice wet medium line that is reasonably smooth for a steel nib. 12cm capped.
