BenJoeM posted a topic in EsterbrookNew to the forum but I am in love with Esterbrooks. I found my first one in the wild last week at an antique store in a small "1 horse" town. The owner still had the original box and instructions and it comes with a sunburst 3550 nib. It had one bad scratch on it other than it seemed to be in near perfect condition. So the $25 price tag was easy for me. The sac was still intact when I opened it up, but I replaced it cleaned the feed, and was able to remove the scratch. It is now polished and writes well. Wanted to share with you all my find being one of my first posts.

From the album: Esterbrook Steel PensEsterbrook, #11 Albata steel pen. c. 1910. An excellent example of a double grind, and an unusual example for an Esterbrook this late in the company history.

Hi everyone, I was so excited after winning a lovely Estie J firm fine from gweimer1' s generous PIF; I told my family about it. My mother showed up for Christmas to show (possible give?) two Esties that she had found but hadn't used in years even though she loved them. The silver one is mine. Her's are both relief oblique nibs. One I believe is an A101, as it doesn't have a lever-fill. The other seems slimmer but the same length as my J, so I'm not sure what model it is. My mother believes she had one and then bought the other one for herself as a special present. I'm trying to figure out which pen is older, and as I'm a fine nib type of person, how a relief nib differs from a normal oblique. I love a good Christmas pen mystery! The cap on the A101 has a crack, but otherwise the pens seem to be in good shape; I'm going to try to get them inked up today. Wonder if I need to flush first... it's been decades since they had any ink in them.
