Oh, I did not see a red Bell Systems when I was searching for that name on eBay. I did read about them in a thread here. Sorry you missed it.

I hope I win the one I am bidding on because it comes from speerbob, so it will be in working order.

I won the Bell Systems Esterbrook. It went from $38.99 to $43.89. I tried to reason, if I lose there will be more. But I ended up increasing my bid. Happily that was unnecessary.

Bell System Property LJ arrived today. Hurray! The OP had 3 arrive, and I’ll have 2 arrive. That puts my Esterbrook count up to 6.

I thought the other Esterbrook I ordered was blue. Turns out it is black. The seller never mentioned color, but somehow I saw blue in the photos. The nib is the right one. But the pen obviously needs cleaning as there is dried ink at the base of the nib.

Drat, I thought my collection was set, but still no blue. Edited to add it is an LJ. I looked back at the photos to see if I should have spotted that. But the close up on the cap made it look bigger. I should have noticed the smoothness, and realized it was not blue. But the nib is the 2314-M, and I think I will put it on the Bell System Property LJ to have one super great LJ. I need to be in The Black Pen Society.
