I know that it is for a good cause however the 1xxx and 2xxx series nibs plus the two chipped caps as well as the very limited views of the pens make this auction less than a serious opportunity to pick a bunch of Esterbrooks.

 

Thank you for the heads up about the sale though.

Where do you see chipped caps?

To start, look at the pens in the attached image, where the cap meets the body. If you go to the ad it looks to me that at least one more cap has a similar chip in approximately the same place. If I were spending that kind of money for Esterbrook "J" pens I would definitely want 9xxx series nibs and more and closer-up pictures showing other aspects of the pen.

 

$40.00+/ average per pen with no idea of the number of pens requiring new sacs (maybe none to maybe all six) or what is on the unseen surfaces (maybe pristine or perhaps less so...).

 

This is simply my perspective.

I think those white shapes are reflections of a particular light in the ceiling.

I think the lot consists of eleven pens, not only six.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

I came to those same conclusions

Regarding the cracked cap lips, I don't think so. The other cap lips have a similar reflection. The two I noticed do not look - symmetrical to me. Of course I could be wrong.

 

As for the actual number of pens, if it is 11 and not6 that makes the purchase much more attractive to someone else, not me.

 

I guess that unless someone here on FPN buys this lot and posts the correct information, we will never know the reality of the lot of pens.

 

Thus the joy of speculation and knowledgeable FPN banter.

 

Best to all.
