Vintage Pens: 4245: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Set
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.

Vintage Pens: 4241: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen Set
Smoky blue makes for a cool Esterbrook Dollar Pen set. We love the color and have fully restored the vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks mar either the pen or the pencil, but each has its share of wear. Most endearing is the terribly engraved name on the pen barrel. What is supposed to be "Norma Lund" looks like "No rma Lund." It comes with an early flat-feed steel 1554 nib. Although the tip looks worn down it writes a surprisingly smooth, juicy extra-fine line. It must have served "No rma" well over the years. The pencil works great and has no engraving, but it does have light tooth marks on the top of the cap. It comes with spare 1.1mm leads. Pen measures 10.9cm 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: 4230: Parker: Vacumatic
Blue is beautiful on a Parker Vacumatic like our major model from what we suspect is 1938. No aluminum filler, but those often got replaced, and this has the 8 date code with a two-banded cap. We could be wrong, it might be from 1948...but we are leaning heavily to '38. Fully restored with a new diaphragm, this vintage pen is ready to write. You have some visible barrel clarity in the photo. Click the headline for close-ups. Just the usual light wear on the cap and barrel...except for a dull spot in the color just to the right of the threads on the barrel in the photo. We can't get it to buff out. You'll write an extra-fine line with feedback using its 14k gold nib. Technically, you can flex the nib just a shade but it takes careful, patient effort. 12.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4229: Parker: Vacumatic
Nickel trim looks sharp on our silver pearl Parker Vacumatic Major. We restored it with a new diaphragm, and it is in great working order. Click the headline for a closer look at its barrel clarity and original 14k gold nib. Even the blind cap is perfectly fit after the restoration. You'll see some light general wear from use, but there are no cracks or egregious scratches. The barrel imprint is clear and there is an 8 date code. We think that makes it a 1948. The Vac pump is a little bent, but it works perfectly well. Dip it and see that it writes a very nice fine line. 13cm capped.
