Looking to ID a strange LJ


Recommended Posts

Hello! I’ve just gotten an odd variant of an LJ, and wondered if anyone might know where it fits in Estie history... The body is a pure solid color red with a horizontal imprint, perpendicular to the pen. I haven’t seen that before, and while I know some English J series pens were solids, this imprint includes “made in USA.” Then it gets even stranger- cap is striped - could be a mismatch, but the color is exact. What’s the story on this one?

Definitely a mismatch.  The cap is from an icicle pen.  The barrel is from a really late model J pen, when cost cutting starting hurting the quality.  I've had a few of these, and they are definitely of lower quality than the J series from the '40s.
