Esterbrook Dollar Demi Imprint



Recommended Posts

I bought what I thought was a full-sized dollar pen.  Thank's to Brian's fantastic website, I have figured out it is actually a Model H (demi).  Anyone know what the character after "H" is/means?

Interesting.  I had not considered that.  I am quite certain it is a Model H -- it's 11cm long -- so I guess I just assumed it was an "H."

 

The j bar also does not seem to have a little bump to stop the lever from flipping...

Early pend didn’t have the little stop. 
 

the second letter in a model name is the color. 
 

Despite rumors otherwise the imprint is not REsterbrook Ho

I checked the script on your pen to my early rubber versions (1934, 1938 clip type). Yours is more of what I would call block letters and mine are more representative of the flair normally since with Specerian script . I can certainly see why you would think the letter is an "h". 

 

Congratulations on you pen and that link you posted is one I wore out. :)

If you understand the sizing in the J series, it's not hard to follow the Dollar pens.

So, the J is full size, the LJ is the long slender,  and the SJ is the short slender.

Following in the Dollar pens, it's the fill size B , then the A and then the H.  No. There doesn't seem to be any logic there, but that's how they work.

LOL, it never occured to me what the initals meant.
