Tooling around on e-bay, I found a seller (rgbpd1) with a "Gold Plated fine point nib -- fits screw in Esterbrook pen" 

 

This NIB reads: "VERI SMOOTH MADE IN U.S.A. FINE"

 

The price is $18 with $4.05 shipping out of Tennessee. 

 

Very odd. The fun part is that there is an I not a Y in VERI. 

 

Anyone use one of these? I ordered one of these so that I can try it. May take me a while to get around to actually trying it, but, I was curious if anyone knew about these nibs. I am a bit suspicious, but the seller has a bunch of positive feedback.

There were a number of nibs that worked with the Esterbrook pens - Venus, Osmiroid, Lindon.

 

If the nib you have fits in the collar, then you're good.  I haven't really found any nibs that work better in an Esterbrook aside from their own nibs, but it's fun to have some alternatives.
