I picked up a 2442 at a store in Florida last year, but it's not gold plated. I just looked at it again, and the feed is different from my other 5 Esties. The grooves don't go all the way around; the bottom of the feed is a smooth cylindrical shape. What does yours look like?

I have a couple of gold platted nibs but they are English. Where was yours made?

The English 3*** nibs all appear to have been gold plated. I have 5 or 6 examples, 100% GP.

Not sure what you mean regarding Mickey Mouse ears, Tom. That's the standard shape of the falcon nib. Nice find in gold plated though. Several early nibs can be found this way, but not at all common.

My "Dollar Pen" has a different clip design and no cap jewel.

Yes, this is technically a transitional pen, not a dollar pen.

I have a 14 Ct relief nib. It screws in, unlike my other English Esterbrook relief pen. (This one came in a red pen - about the size of an LJ with jewels on both ends.)

I wasn't aware that some Esterbrook nibs were gold plated. Thanks for posting these photos Tom, rach31 and bfg. You learn something new everyday.

I have a couple #2442 Falcon Stubs, but silver colored.

Rach31, I've never seen an Estie like the solid red one in your photo. Does it have a name? When does it date from?

Hi Mary,

The Estie that Rach31 is talking about is called Relief/35 and it is a post war UK product. 

It is not a very common product.  Our esteemed moderator Bryan Anderson does not even have it in his esterbrook.net ;)
AWESOME nibs...
