Can anyone identify this Esterbrook for me. 

It appears to be a transitional pen but has a pointed metall top with flat bottom.

Thanks for any help.

Looks a lot like a Parker replacement jewel

Thanks penfancier, I though it could have been an odd replacement part.

It isn't Parker since they didn't make them out of metal, but not Esterbrook either.  Some of the Esterbrooks (ribbed buttons) are threaded and screw into the inner cap to hold the clip on.  Loose that and you're looking for a replacement.... or making one.

Looks like a custom replacement jewel.
