Incised cap bands strike again! This rare cap is a treat in green. We have fully restored this Esterbrook Dollar Pen. We present it as we found it, and we think the cap and barrel are a matched pair from different pens. The greens are a little different and the cap and barrel make a little bit of an elbow when screwed together. Nevertheless, this crack-free cap is still fairly rare. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, but there is a little wear on the cap and the nib section has some deep scratches from a previous repair. No cracks in the barrel. It is a good pen. It sports an early 1551 nib that writes a medium line with a little fine variation. 12.1cm capped.
