My growing Esterbrook collection.  I came into a couple of little goodies lately.  The Visumaster continues to elude me...

 

This is a UK made M2 with a 14K relief nib

And I finally got the red one.

Nice. I haven't started into the land of nurse/doctor/purse pens yet. But I have a feeling it won't be long...

Those pens don't even look used.

They took the blue from the skies and the pretty girls' eyes and a touch of Old Glory too . . .

So, all you need is the green jewel Nurse's pen to complete the set?  

Nice going.  What's the nib on the red jeweled one?

Probably whatever he wants it to be, after scoring on the box of Esterbrook nibs.

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

Well, the two Doctor pens each have 3xxx nibs.  The black one has a NOS 3668 (although I have sinned and used it.).  The red one has a 3556, and I haven't tried it yet.  I actually have a few pens that I haven't written with in my box.

I particularly like that red M2 with the 14K Relief nib.

The Dollar pen (and Dollar Fifty here) are shorter but slightly fatter than a Parker 51.

 Thank you very much!!

 

 (So do ya think I should replace my J with a dollar fiddy pen??)

 

 I mean, are the dollar pens really any different than Js in regards to durability?

 

 

 Thanks!
