Type  Vintage lever filling fountain pen.

Product Name  Pastels, First Generation (the jewels are black). This was a part of the J series.

Manufacturer and Year  Esterbrook, made in USA - 1954-57.

Length  4-3/8".

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

Color  Taupe (grey with a tinge of brown) with chrome trim and black end jewels.

Nib  1461 Rigid Fine nib.  The 1461 nib is catalogued as Rigid Fine for manifolding and carbon copies.

Condition  Excellent condition with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings.  The barrel has light scratching with more moderate scratching toward the end of the barrel, including one mark that looks like a bite.  The cap has light scratching only.  The clip has some plating wear and scratching especially toward the top.  The end jewels look excellent.  The imprint is clear.

The Purse/Pastel pens and pencils were made with a more fragile plastic than other Esterbrook pens, and it's common to find cracks in the cap lips, but there are none here. Because of this, we suggest that you do not post this pen, or use extreme caution in doing so.

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.
