Vintage Pens: 4506: Esterbrook: M2
If you like whisper-thin extra-fine nibs that are kinda scratch nails...and we know you're out there...you will love this Esterbrook M2 from around 1958. These were a nice, easy-use vintage pen. It has a working aerometric (squeeze-bar) filler with a good ink sac. The barrel is grey with greenish undertones. Light wear on the barrel. Unfortunately there is a half-inch crack in the cap starting at the lip and working to the right of the clip as you face it. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4505: Esterbrook: M2
Esterbrook kept pushing the boundaries of affordable modern pens in the 1950s with the Esterbrook M2. Simple black and chrome look great on this vintage pen. No cracks in the cap or pen, but the barrel has light to moderate wear from use. Esterbrook borrowed Parker's idea for the aerometric filler, and this pen has a good ink sac. Best of all is the somewhat rare 2314-F Relief nib. It is a smooth steel nib that is supposed to be an oblique writer, but it nicely writes more like an extra-fine-to-fine normal nib. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4504: Esterbrook: M2
Chrome and blue look great on this Esterbrook M2 from around 1958. Minimal wear disrupts the good looks of this vintage pen. However, the section (grip) is discolored a little darker than the barrel. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. You fill the pen with a variant of the aerometric filler. Its 9550 nib was considered an upgrade back in the day. You will write a firm extra-fine line with the nib. It is smooth with a very light and delicate touch. 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4503: Esterbrook: M2 Set
Esterbrook picked up the popular aerometric filling system started by Parker in the 1950s. Our Esterbrook M2 is new old stock from 1958. It is a red pen-and-pencil set, and the pen still has its pricing sticker. Unfortunately, these caps have an unfortunate habit of splitting. The fountain pen has a 3/4-inch split from the lip just to the left of the clip. The rest of the pen is in mint condition with a working ink sac. Instructions on the filler say it fills in three squeezes. Its steel 1555 Gregg nib writes a surprisingly smooth extra fine line. Its matching pencil is likewise in mint condition without a split in the cap. Twist the tail cap to advance and retract its .9mm lead. Pen measures 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4365: Esterbrook: Transition
Big things were happening at Esterbrook in the late 1940s. Success bred a new design out of its popular Dollar Pen series. The new J-models were coming, BUT! They had more of the new caps than the old Dollar Pen caps. And so, they used the last of the old Dollar Pen barrels with new J-series caps. This is one such Esterbrook Transition pen. We restored it with a new ink sac and a replacement 1555 Gregg (handwriting method) nib. You'll write a firm, smooth extra-fine line. No cracks, great imprint, rare 3-line black plastic jewel. Light wear and some darkening at the end of the lever-filler. Comes with a working J-series click pencil. Pen measures 12.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4392: Esterbrook: SJ-2668
Mint green looks fantastic on this Esterbrook SJ fountain pen and pencil set. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. A classic from the era of tail fins, rock 'n' roll and sock hops, this set has survived it all with light wear and no cracks. The pen's steel 2668 nib was considered an upgrade nib and it writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. The early click pencil still works well and uses .9mm leads. SJs were the shorter model. Pen measures 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4378: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen
Incised bands on caps are rare among the Esterbrook Dollar Pen models. We are offering this fully restored sapphire blue model with a J-model pencil that looks similar. We installed a new ink sac. Wear is visible on the cap and barrel, but there are no cracks or egregious deep scratches. The pen might be married. The cap is a little more smokey blue and the barrel is a more vibrant deep blue. Its steel 1551 nib writes a medium line with some feedback. There is a chip in the section grip. The pencil is an early clicker and is in good working order. Click the headline for close-ups. Pen measures 12.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4375: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen
Esterbrook Dollar Pens are always a little bit of a rare treat, but check out the rare triple-incised bands at the bottom of the cap. Click the headline for a close-up. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. The outside of the cap and barrel show a little wear from use. No cracks and the clip is on tightly. We missed it initially, but there's a pock mark on the flat tail of the barrel. Cigarette burn? Not sure. You'll write a firm, fine line with its upgraded 9556 nib. These were Esterbrook's top-of-the-line nibs. Of course, if you don't like it, the best part about these pens is that the nibs screw out, and there are at least 3 dozen alternate point sizes to choose from. Plus, this comes with a matching click pencil. Actually, pencil tail cap seems married to the barrel. Works. .9mm lead. Pen measures 12.1cm capped.
