Out from under the bed  today are my assortment of Esterbrook Relief pen,  mostly  Marbled Plastic

lever fillers  , 2 Black  Relief @-L   flat bottomed , golden trim too

 

A BCHR # 2 S  for Stub but a  hard to find Button Filler

 

Lastly My Mottled Red Hard Rubber , relief # 1  with Red Top Band  a Stubby nib#1  , very nice Box, with papers

          I see the cap is bandless..

 

I have gathered these somewhere along my 25  years of  Collecting

 

Any questions  just ask.

Aw, c'mon Tom. I have the 6 J colors and 2 transitionals, and don't need further encouragement!

Baptiste knew how to make a short job long

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

I'm very fond of the RMHR examples, very nice.  Need to get me one of those some day.

 

Here's a Relief you don't see every day, a 22L ring-top.  Though not pictured, I have the original box.  The pen is in really nice condition.

One more: A 1L in an interesting color, but with a BAD problem.

 

 

Looks great, but...

Hadn't seen this color before, so bought it despite the slight cap issue.

Too bad it has a cap isuse

Consider a full black cap when available or

 

Have single  color cap lip  perhaps with a band   to enjoy the pen

 

These are so rare, I would have bought it also

Good Luck
