The Relief pens that I know of (and Brian Anderson has info on his website) seem to be a crossroads between Conway Stewart and Esterbrook.  I have a Relief 12, which is very much like a Conway Stewart, and a Relief 66 which is a larger version of the Dollar pen ("Relief" stamped on the cap, and "Esterbrook" stamped on the barrel)


Except, of course, the old L series Relief pens mentioned above.  I have a 2-L Relief pen, but I'm looking for one of those really nice ones in the bold colors.

I wouldn't be surprised if Conway Stewart did make the pen bodies. Esterbrook only made nibs in the early years and had others make the pen bodies of their first attempts at fountain pens. But I'm sure others know much more about this than I do.
