I've seen a US Government marked Esterbrook desk pen, and I've heard of a US Navy marked Esterbrook desk pen, but I've never seen one.

I have a US Navy Dip-Less desk set and would love to add a US Navy pen to complete the set. Do these ever show up anywhere and what could I expect to pay for one if I could find one?

I believe most were not marked but I would love to find one that is.
Any help is appreciated.

I have a 444 dip-less with "Navy" marked on the base and I have seen ebay sales of Navy marked items for other pen brands but never a "Navy" desk pen.

This old thread from 2011 is what makes me think US Navy marked Esties are out there. But I'd even settle for a US Government marked pen, I've actually seen those just not often.

From member Inka:
"I guess it was Esterbrooks attempt at making their first cheap, semi-disposable desk pens for the U. S Government [? I'm shooting in the dark there?], as the ones i have that are marked U. S. Navy are all of much higher quality plastics and much better made overall."
