Vintage Pens: Esterbrook SJ-1551

Vintage Pens: 4279 Esterbrook SJ-1551
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $39.99
Surprising writers with its delightfully smooth broad nib, this rich, deep coppery Esterbrook SJ fountain pen is a wonderful addition to any writer's collection. We restored it with a new ink sac. No cracks or significant damage mars the luster of the cap and barrel. Coming with a steel 1551 nib, we think someone altered rigid extra-fine point to be a super smooth broad nib some time during the past 7 decades. Clean imprint. Complete double jewels. A great daily writer or even a display piece. As the SJ model, it is the shorter, more slender version. 11.9cm capped.
