  1. I recently got an Estie Dollar Pen on eBay with an 8668 nib, listed among some more mundane Esterbrooks by a non-collector antique dealer who's probably wondering why this pen went for 5 times what the others achieved. I've been going to pen shows for 12 years, the last few as a dealer, with an interest in Esterbrooks, and I'd never encountered an 8000-series nib before. The 8000's are made of a palladium/silver alloy, a World War II artifact from when steel was a critical wartime material and silver and palladium weren't.

    Well, This Was Unexpected...

    At the flea market today I bought a typical silver/grey Esterbrook dollar pen. It had what appeared to be some dried ink on the portion of the barrel covered by the cap. No big deal I thought.

The pen is missing its clip and has a few scratches on the barrel, and the brass on the inside of the barrel where the section was fitted is greenish and slightly corroded. My question is t
  4. http://goo.gl/ZwiWHs "You are bidding on a Very Nice Vintage Black Esterbrook Fountain Pen! Pen Manufacturer: Esterbrook Nib Details: 2442 Oblique Nib Condition of Pen: Very Nice Used Condition Fill Style / System: Lever filler appears to be working" Cost me $18.50 including shipping. I'm no nib expert but I think a 2442 is worth that by itself. YAY ME!
