Another Estie Anomoly

Greetings O Estie Experts...I have here an older model dollar pen, black, with a single-hole clip (V-clip?) that I bought from Hobiwan on the Bay several years ago. I just recently started using it regularly, took a good look at the imprint and found it, well different. The word "Esterbrook" (in the usual script runs length wise down the barrel, but "Made in USA" runs around the barrel. What really struck me though, was the fact that it read just "Esterbrook", and not as one would expect on a pen of that vintage, " R.Esterbrook & Co." I have one other V-clip pen on which the imprint is normal, with the name, and "Made in USA" running lengthwise.

There's actually a third variant as well. I wrote an article in the Pennant for the PCA a couple years ago on all the imprints. I'll have to dig up the info.

Brian, any idea when you might post the article?

I noticed that the one V-clip that I have has the "script" (with emphasized letters as if from a flex nib) which I did not know that existed. Anyway, does anyone has that article that Brian promised to dig for eleven years ago ? :) :)

PS. Note the shrinking at the top of the barrel, pressumably from the top of the J-bar.

What did I promise again?  Lol. Been working on a overhaul of Esterbrook.net but my daughter (who was assigned photographing and editing new pictures) has not been able to edit images. Looks like I have to outsource that. This is my favorite imprint variation, btw.

You were going to write an article for the Pennant showing the Esterbrook logos on a timeline.

I sort of looked at a part of this back when I pulled together what the signature on the back of the Esterbrook boxes looked like over time. You're welcome to use this should you need it, and if you ever write that article.
