Here are some pics of my $1.50 Esterbrook (circa 1938) White Cracked Ice pen and pencil set. Pretty hard to find...cool 8668 Palladium nib too.

 

...Enjoy the images!

 

They being offered so that another collector on FPN has an opportunity to add them to their colleciton (BIN at the usual site).

And I'm guessing this is the same set I just came across here.

Thank you for your compliments! Just curious, I know the 8668 nib is magnificent, in Palladium, and the best writer I own, but what was the proper original nib(s) supplied with the upscale cracked ice pens? I might want to switch out to the proper nib.

The pen was made during the "flat-feed" nib era. They were called RE-NEW rather than Renew Point.

 

The point it most likely came with was a 9xxx series flat-feed. The 8668 is good, and if that's the way it came to you, the original owner probably changed out the 9x for that one during WWII.
