Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F

As the 1940s came to a close, Esterbrook decided to redesign its popular Dollar Pen to be the Esterbrook J-model pen. The trouble was they made way more Esterbrook Dollar Pen barrels than they did caps. As such, they just started selling these pens with a J-model cap. These pens are known as Esterbrook Transition pens. Ours is fully restored with a new ink sac. It has a little wear from use and slight chocolate hazing on the section, but there are no cracks. The steel 1555 Gregg nib is not original to this model, but these pens have interchangeable screw-in nibs. You will see that this nib writes a surprisingly smooth fine line with a touch of feedback. It was made for teaching and using the Gregg handwriting method. 12.3cm capped.
