Vintage Pens: 3691 Esterbrook Nurse’s Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3691: Esterbrook: Nurse’s Pen
Esterbrook Nurse's Pens are highly sought vintage writing instruments. Replicating a nurse's uniform in the 1950s, these white pens are nice editions. The red cap and tail jewels are nearly perfect without any chips or cracks. Aside from a little discoloring to a cream color, this vintage pen is in excellent condition without any cracks or other major blemishes. We replaced the ink sac, and the J-bar, which had cracked and fallen out. We made our own J-bar out of brass flashing. It works well, but it does allow the lever to dangle a little when upside down. You get an original Esterbrook box and a steel 2556 nib in the pen. It writes a nice wet medium line that is reasonably smooth for a steel nib. 12cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3690 Esterbrook Unknown
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 3690: Esterbrook: Unknown
Esterbrook stayed on the cutting edge with cartridge pens, after their successful J-series run in the 1950s. We don't know the model name of this Esterbrook cartridge pen, but is is an early cartridge filler in grey and chrome. Although gently used, there are very few significant traces of wear on this vintage pen. Definitely no cracks or deep scratches. It even comes with an empty original cartridge, which is fortunate, as there are no longer any Esterbrook cartridges for sale brand new and full. It writes with a steel 1461 nib that is an uncharacteristically super smooth fine line in our hands. That weird dunces cap shaped plastic thing in front of the pen was wedged in the section. We don't know if that was meant to regulate inkflow through the pen, but you get it with the pen, just in case. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3689: Esterbrook: LJ-2668
What brand taught the more Americans how to write with an ink pen in the 1950s? Esterbrook! Baby Boomers were required at many high schools and business schools to use Esterbrook pens. From customizable nibs that easily unscrew to handsome color schemes at affordable pricing, there is a lot to love. We restored this copper-colored Esterbrook LJ pen with a new ink sac. It comes with a steel 2668 nib that writes a medium line. It is a little scratchy, but it is better than many Esterbrooks. No cracks, deep scratches or other major blemishes. Tail and cap jewels are whole, and the clip is on tight. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3392: Esterbrook: J-9556
Remember that thing called the phone company? The biggie was Bell, as in Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the old contraptions that didn't play movies, music or send telegrams called texts. This Esterbrook J-model pen once belonged to Bell Systems. It is tattooed to the other side of this pen. Imagine if your job provided you with a customizable fountain pen today! This one got plenty of work, as you can tell by the heavy wear all over it. Still, we restored it with a new ink sac and shined it up as best we could. No cracks! However, the cap jewel is pretty badly chipped, and the clip spins freely...even though it won't fall off. The steel 9556 nib is an upgrade nib, and it writes a firm, fine, fluid line without any glitches. It does have a little feedback, but it isn't scratchy. You just feel the paper under the nib. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3425 Esterbrook J-9314M
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 3425: Esterbrook: J-9314M
Here's your chance for an affordable exotic nib. It is a steel Esterbrook 9314 Medium, which is an oblique stub! You can write a little more than 1mm wide at its thickest, and it will do so fairly smoothly. It is out of practice and needs a little breaking in to get past some initial hard starts. It comes in a very handsome minty green Esterbrook J-model pen. This is the widest of the J-series pens. You can find a few blemishes, but they are easily overwhelmed by the gleaming finish of the pen. No cracks. Its biggest fault is a pocket clip that spins freely. It is on securely, it just spins. The cap jewel is great, but the tail jewel is chipped...maybe 20% gone. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3533: Sheaffer: Sovereign
Rube Goldberg would be proud of the engineers at Sheaffer for designing the snorkel filling system. It was a brilliant gimmick to be the mess-free fountain pen that never needed wiping off. It works well, too. Our Sheaffer Sovereign is fully restored with a new ink sac, O-ring and point seal. It is free of cracks, and a dent-free some-what rare cap. The cap and barrel have a little wear from use that no one will notice in passing or from across the table. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a delightful firm, fine line. 14.1cm capped.
