Vintage Pens: 4235: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Set
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.

Vintage Pens: 4234: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Set
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: 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.

Vintage Pens: 2755: Esterbrook: Cracked Ice
Among the hardest-to-find Esterbrook pens is the famed Esterbrook Cracked Ice design from the 1930s until about 1941. We found one. This particular model has been officially referred to as both green AND blue, but not blue-green. Just as stunning as the design is the fact it is in such pristine condition, with only the slightest trace of discoloration near the threads on the barrel. Click the headline for a close-up. You can easily get lost in the nooks and crannies of such vibrant early plastics. It has no cracks and minimal wear. It was restored with a fresh ink sac. The original steel 9668 nib writes a very nice fine line with only a faint hint of feedback. Wider bodied like a J-model. 12.1cm capped.
