Won A Lot Of 20 Parts Pens. Surprised To See One Is A Transitional!

I was surprised to see the one and only Esterbrook in the lot had a flat bottom which wasn't evident in the auction photos. Sadly, it's missing it's cap. Pity to, as it's a lovely green Transitional model. Research has shown me the imprint on the body is that of a Transitional single jewel J series pen.

 

I'll keep it in my rapidly filling up 'pen parts-and-repair cigar box' in the hopes that I come across a cap for it someday.

The real kick in the short hairs though, is that I have a perfectly matching cap for it already, but it is cracked at the top under the clip, and missing the jewel.

Switch with what?

 

I do have a nice green J, but either way I'm short a standard J sized green cap.

It doesn't solve the issue of no cap at all, but,

 

The v3 Tranny's clip is company branded and looks just like DJ J caps. Only v1 and v2 Trannies had unbranded clips.

He was referring to the cap band issues. It is easier to switch caps and harvest a jewel from the cap with a loose band than it is trying to tighten up a band.
