So in my hunt for pen..  I visited South Jersry  , as inNew  to a large flea  market and came across a vendor selling  pens

 

Amongst the usual  boring material  I found these two gems.

 

A 1960's  my guess Safari Set with box in  Forrest Green a lever filler   box  is in fair condition but still protected it nicely

 

 

The  other  Model  described in its  a brochure as a Classic M 2  Fountain pen and set , Circa   1959

 

It is an Aero-metric filling pen..   Neat  engraving: , as follows:

 

Lou Dieterich

Jersey- Ski-Teers   ( help with what a  Ski- Teers  is/ are)

        1959

 

Certainly helps to date the pen set.

 

Chrome caps have the deep "V"

 

Your thoughts are welcomed.

The Jersey Ski-Terrs were a ski club in New Jersey. I also have a pen from them. Mine is an M2 and is engraved
Stan Allen
President 1963
Jersey Skiters

Mine’s also blue.

I’ve not been able to find out more than it was a ski club that was around until the 1980’s.

I have a fondness for engraved Esties.

Very nice, distinctive Esties.

The set you identified as a Safari looks to me like a Deluxe (LK) model.  http://www.esterbrook.net/deluxe.shtml

The green set is a Deluxe LK.   Those are my second favorite Esterbrook, behind the Dollar pen (the J series isn't my primary love of Esterbrook, believe it or not).  The one thing that I really don't like about the Deluxe LK is that they are incredibly difficult to resac.  The metal threads sit on some rather soft plastic, so getting the section off is really tricky.  I've destroyed more than a couple of these - the plastic gets too soft before the section loosens up.  I finally just decided to make one of mine an eye dropper, and hope the sac is good enough to withstand the ink and no pressure.  I think I have a half dozen or more colors of those.

 

The M2 is another great pen in my book.  I keep a Turquoise one handy, with a 9284 nib, and bring it out every once in a while.

Nice catch!
