Description

Details

Type  Vintage lever filling fountain pen.

Product Name  Esterbrook SJ Pen.

Manufacturer and Year  Esterbrook, made in USA -- 1950s.

Length  4-13/16".

Filling System  Lever filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working very well.

Color  Copper pen. This is the lighter, and later brown color produced. This color was just called "Brown" by Esterbrook. Steel trim and black jewels on either end.

Nib  FINE FIRM #2556 steel nib is smooth with lots of tipping and a really nice looking feed. There is some wear on the slit. The 2000 series of nibs don't have any tipping material. Instead the tines are bent for a "DuraChrome" point. The 2556 nib is cataloged as Firm Fine for general writing.

Condition  Excellent condition. There are many tiny marks throughout. The pen doesn't look worn but it is not smooth when you run a fingernail over it. There is a bit of discoloration on the section. No cracks, chips, dents, personalization, or plating wear. We've restored the pen and it's working very well.

Policies

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
