As best as I can remember ------ being an old man ----- I bought my Esterbrook "on line" about twenty years and really love it.  It is one of my favorite pens.  As I understand it, there are many different Esterbrook nibs.  The number on mine is 2668, I believe. I would call it a "medium," tending a little toward the "fine."  Great pen, great nib.  I seem to remember seeing a chart showing all Esterbrook nibs with a few words of definition about each.  Do you know about this chart?  Thanks.  C. S.

Yes, CS.   I do.   (Now, where did I put it ?)  

 

I used it with my desktop PC , at work.  I don't know whether I saved it on my home laptop.  I retired, recently, and chose the mobility of a Chromebook.  If I find the chart, I will PM you for a private email address, so I can send it.  

 

(Thank you for the motivation.  Who knows what treasures I will find, when I start digging again.)  :rolleyes:

If this doesn't get you there, Google "Esterbrook point selection chart"

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