Are The Ballpoints Rare?



Recommended Posts

I have only had one Esterbrook ballpoint, a desk ballpoint.  Are the ballpoints rare?

I've seen them at auction, but hesitated out of concern I would not be able to obtain a refill.

The J series ball pens are not rare but the least commonly found J pen.  There is a modern refill that works if you put a widget on the end.

I have, well had, one with that widget.  It works pretty well.  It's made by BamaPen.  It uses standard D11 refills, as I recall.

I have had one desk ballpoint with that widget, and it worked well.  It gave life to a pen that would have otherwise been useless.
