Description

Details

Type  Fountain pen

Product Name  Esterbrook J

Manufacturer and Year  Esterbrook, USA -- 1950s

Length  5-1/16" 

Filling System  The fountain pen is a lever filler with a new sac installed. It's tested and working great. The pencil is cap actuated (clicker almost) style to extend and retract leads. Beneath the cap it specifies that you should use 0.046" leads. This is the "thin" lead size and 0.9mm leads do work. An eraser can be found beneath the cap. Because this is a more modern pencil, you can put leads in the reservoir and they will fall into the clicking system instead of needing to be individually fed into the cone like in older pencils.

Color  Pearlescent green-gray with black jewels on either end and steel trim. We're not sure if this was originally Foliage Green or Pearl Gray. The color is very even, though it's a little greener in the barrel area covered by the cap, so it was probably originally green.

Nib  FINE OBLIQUE STUB #9314-F steel nib has a nice sweet spot but can be very scratchy when held at an improper angle. It's a little bit springy and a left foot. The 9000 series of nibs have iridium tipping. The 9314-F nib is cataloged as a Relief Fine Oblique or a Relief Fine Stub.

Condition  Excellent + condition. The set is evenly faded to a greenish grey. Otherwise the set is in incredible condition. The barrel imprints are clear and there are very few marks on the fountain pen. The pencil has more marks and some scratches. The trim on both pieces looks great and the pen and pencil are both shiny and smooth. No cracks, dings, 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.
