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.

Surprisingly smooth is the best way we can describe the fine-point steel 1555 GREGG nib on this Esterbrook Dollar Pen. The nibs were designed for the Gregg shorthand method. This one floats closer to a medium line. It is a more modern version of the nib from the 1950s. The green pen is a lovely specimen of vintage writing instruments. No cracks. Just a little wear and scratching on the cap and barrel. We restored the vintage pen with a new ink sac. Its early clicker pencil mate is in like wise good and working condition. The pencil uses 1.1mm leads and comes with a few spares. The pencil is likely rarer than the pen. Pen measures 12.1cm capped.

Ruby red Esterbrook Dollar Pens are a little rarer than the other colors. This is the shorter version of the Dollar Pen, but the pencil is the standard "P" model. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. There are no cracks, but it shows some wear from use. Its steel 1550 nib writes an extra-fine line with some feedback. Basically, it is fine enough to be an accountant's nib! The pencil is in better cosmetic condition and works great. An early click pen, it comes with extra 1.1mm leads. No eraser. Pen measures 11.1mm capped.

Sunburst nibs are rare treasures for Esterbrook collectors. Click the headline to see a close up of the sunburst 3556 "Osmiridium Tip" nib on our Esterbrook Dollar Pen set. We restored this handsome grey vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, only minor wear from use. Its matching pencil is also on the rare side, as it is an early clicker lead-advance pencil. No eraser, but it has spare 1.1mm leads. Back to the fountain pen, its nib has some loss of luster on the nib. However, the nib writes a nice fine line with a little feedback. Pen measures 12.1cm capped.

Esterbrook really pioneered a lot in this simple pen-and-pencil set. Our Esterbrook Dollar Pen is the slender "A" model. Made in the late 1930s or early 1940s, its coolest feature is the interchangeable nib system. You can unscrew the entire nib assembly to change or repair your nib. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The nib assembly is the original one with the flat bottomed inkfeed. Its steel nib is a remarkably buttery smooth writer of a medium line. Click the headline for close-ups. The Esterbrook "P" pencil is also part of the "Dollar Pen" series. It is among the first clicker/injector lead pencils ever made. It uses 1.1mm leads and works great. Both instruments show wear from use but nothing terrible. The nose cone of the pencil is a little pitted. Works perfectly, includes spare leads. Pen measures 12.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4167: Esterbrook: Relief No. 2-L
Choo-choo! We keep that train of obscure, rare and hard-to-find Esterbrooks rollin' on down the track. This time we do it with another English-made Esterbrook Relief No. 2-L. Restored with a new ink sac, it shows some wear and brassing but no cracks. Naturally, you clicked that headline to take a gander at the amazing 14k gold #2 oblique nib. Ideal for right-handed writers it can write a fine straight line on an angle or a juicy, broad or double broad 1mm+ line at a different angle. Nearly smooth as butter! This likely will be the only one we ever get. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4168: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Model B
There are two reasons we think Esterbrook fans are going to love this Esterbrook Dollar Pen Model B. On first glance you'll see the very rare 3 incised cap bands. A closer look will reveal the semi-rare steel 2788 nib! You will write a wet, medium-broad line with the nib normally...BUT it also is a semi-flex that can go much broader. It gets a little scratchy on ascenders and descenders, but it is smooth in the middle. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, strong imprint. Light wear from use. 12.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2895: Esterbrook: Cracked Ice Light Ivory
Esterbrook fans can really geek out on this gorgeous pen and pencil SET! Yep. It is nearly a perfect Esterbrook Cracked Ice Dollar Pen in "light ivory." No actual cracks. It is stunning. Fully restored with a new ink sac, its only flaws are nearly invisible to the eye. However, you can feel some light scratches and shallow chew marks near the tail. The only discoloration appears to be a little ink staining that got between the inner cap and outer cap. The pencil is in perfect working order with a 1.1mm lead and a hardened eraser under the tail cap. The fountain pen's nib is the older, rarer 3000 series! It is a 3556 Osmiridium Tip that is a little wonky in the photo and scratchy, but it is so rare that it is worth taking to a better nib meister than us. Click the headline for close-ups.
