Was there some particular purpose to those nibs that look like hands?
Rabbit, thanks for posting this. It's fun to look at. I just picked up an Esterbrook dip pen and holder (to go with my 2 black J's). My dip pen is the 049 and is shaped like a hand with the pointing finger formed from the tines,the holder is aluminum and marked for Mellon Bank in Pittsburgh, PA. I live in Pittsburgh so it's very nice for me. The nib is a bit flexable, I'm not up to using it well.
I too would like a complete list of Estie nibs.

Thank you very much.
I am just getting into using a dip pen and have been confused trying to decide what pen/nib to use.
This helps a LOT.

Yes, Stephen, thank you for sharing this! I love it. I've got to get out my Esterbrook dip pens and see what's what. Thank you again!
And Ernie, thank you for making the PDF file. I've downloaded it. Thank you!
Do you really suppose it is possible to find a complete list of Esterbrook dip pens? Could we compile such a list if one does not already exist?
