This is a picture of an Esterbrook SJ  and an SJ transitional.  The flat bottomed transitional is only about an eighth of an inch shorter than the SJ.  I need a Black transitional.  Please look around and see if you can help me.  Thanks very much.     Larry

I've got a black transitional J that I've been thinking of selling. Unless you mean another SJ, maybe we should talk?

Thanks Water, but I am only looking for a black Transitional SJ.   I tried to show that in the original post and title but I don't see an edit button for that.

 

 

To make it clear:   I want a black transitional sj.       Sorry for the confusion.

I'm still looking.  I'll bump this every once in a while.   If you want me to stop, find me the pen. :)    Thank you

Nicely put. I have seen one sj transitional, one red one I bought incidentally. Good luck.

If I come across one, I'll let you know.  I think I have a gray tran SJ in my pile of pens waiting for me.

You are going to have to troll eBay, flea markets, estate sales, antique stores, etc., just like the rest of us.

I don't remember. I probably would have bought it, if it was in the bag. That was when I got the Black Dollar pen from you.
I do have a short black transitional, that probably came from you earlier.

It's just like gambling, the chances are very low that you will win. But the casino sets the slots to allow a score once in a while so you will keep coming back. And I do.

Good luck, this is also the one I am missing, I have the other 5 small transitionals. I'm not really actively looking though, I assume I will stumble onto one at some point.

Have I told you that I'm looking for a Black Esterbrook transitional lately?   And don't call me Claudio!

Still haven't seen one. I got my first SJ transitional recently, but it was in copper. Just as you keep asking, I'll keep looking. This was the first SJ transitional I've seen in real life.
