Vintage Pens: Esterbrook Dollar Pen Set
Vintage Pens: 4245 Esterbrook Dollar Pen Set
Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Esterbrooks became a household favorite starting with the Dollar Pen line. Esterbrook Dollar Pens were affordable, easy to maintain and even easier to customize to one's own personal writing experience with cheap and easily replaced nibs. However, there's nothing cheap or ordinary about the steel 3556 nib on this vintage pen. It is a rare sunburst nib from the 3000s' series! These early nibs are very hard to find, and it writes a beautiful fine line that has a little feedback that we don't find distracting at all. A lovely writer. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, minimal wear. Strong imprint on this copper-color pen. Its matching pencil is a few shades lighter and is a working click lead-advance systems. It uses and comes with a couple of spare 1.1mm leads. Click the headline for close-ups. No eraser. Pen is the larger size, measuring 12cm capped.
