Wagging wildly. Dollar, Dollar, J, LJ, SJ, LJ, J.  Although I am probably way off

 

I love red pens.  Those are great pens and they make me feel good!

 

The year?  No clue.  Esterbrooks come from a time when the world was mystical and wonderful and enchanted!

I think the 1st Dollar is the 1934 version with the clip that pinches off at the cap, and the 2nd is the 1938 version that continues expanding to the jewel.

 

The icicle pattern IDs the LJ.

 

Does the colored jewel tel anything about the 3rd pastel? Those three are pastels, aren't they?

Very nice 1934 Dollar with the solid color but very weak plastic. Then the 1938 dollar (from the left). The sixth is the LJ icicle and of course the last on the right is the J, The workhorse of the Esties. The middle ones (3 and 4 from the left) are not pastels... :) The 5th is a second Generation pastel with the colored jewel.

#3 & 4 - these might be UK-made pens.  The UK models came in solid colors.

No real info on years, but the lever is the spoon style, indicating '50s

I had been guessing that the three solid color pens in the middle might be Pastels, since they show up on my screen looking a lot pinker than the J series pens to the right of them.  I think I had heard that there were some UK production Esties, but didn't know a lot of details about them.  

I love this site, I learn new stuff all the time!

There is another design of the UK Esties with gold trip which show up with 14C Relief renew points.
I have a blue (See http://www.fountainp...-nib/?p=292996)
I might have a red, not sure. If I dont, I need to find one :) :) 
Again any information for the UK Esterbrook would be appreciated!

I believe the first on the left is the 1934 version of the Dollar, with the clip that "pinches off" where it bends over the top of the cap.  The 1938 version has the clip that flares all the way to the dick that is engraved Esterbrook.  My 1934 is BHR [faded to brown] and my later Dollar is plastic and the red J color.
