I'll let the picture do the talking:

Brian,

 

I listened very carefully. I downloaded the picture and put the volume on 11 just to be sure, it says very clearly that you should send this to me. PM me for my address!

I...hate you...so much....

 

Really, where did you manage to get that at?

He must have some occult, underworld, underground source for these things. There's no other way to explain it.

11? Wow, your PC must be extra loud, mine only goes to 10.

Oh, my ears :)

So this is a post 1967 renew point.

It is a renew point right? Compatible with the earlier ones?

Very nice.

 

Yep, fits in just like all the rest. Don't know the date exactly.

Yes, LJ actually, very fine pinstripes on this pen. Wonder why it was never used. Can you imagine if they made them in red or green?

Brian, I am adding some info on that prototype LJ to our Esterbrook page. Do you by chance have any idea what the date on that pen is, or how many are known in the wild?

Sorry if I mislead you, but the nib and the pen weren't together originally. I did purchase them from the same person, who got them from the same estate, but I figured the icicle was a better place to display the 6668 than a standard production pen. No date information, but I think there are two or three others similar to this which I am aware of.

Updated! Thanks Brian.

Double wow on the pen.

As for the date, I may need eye glasses. To me it looks that at the bottom of the page it says VENUS (hence the post 1967 date blurb).

Is this true?

 

I read that as saying MADE IN USA. Now that I look at it again, I could believe it's either.

Nib reads:

 

6668

Esterbrook

Made in USA

 

Sorry for the not so great picture.

 

The pen has a spade style lever, so presumably an earlier prototype, but we know how dating by levers go. :)

Hmmm...666...hmmm...

 

Seriously, Brian - an amazingly cool nib, whatever its provenance.

 

Do you suppose the 6-series nibs were contemporaneous with the Sheaffer Triumph nibs (the latter years of the Triumph, anyway)?

 

Cheers,

 

Jon

A man in a black cape and hood just gave me this bag of pens one day and then vanished. I have no idea who he is or where he went, but on occasion he does show up. :)

 

I suspect so, Esterbrook always seemed to be a day late and a dollar short when it came to trying to keep up with the competition. Hard to believe with all their experience in working with steel nibs they couldn't effectively come out with this nib on a regular production basis. I can't believe it would have cost that much to make.
