It is amazing to us how the shades of green varied so much in Esterbrook J-model pens such as this one. There can be no doubting this is a lighter yellow-green. Overall, it is in great shape. No cracks or deep scratches--just light wear from use. It sports a still-fresh original Esterbrook-marked ink sac! Works great. The real surprise treat with this vintage pen is its surprisingly smooth extra-fine steel nib made for the Gregg writing method! Often these nibs are quite scratchy, but this one writes very well. 12.8cm capped.
