About This Model
Esterbrook’s Dollar Pens were the major second generation of pens with Esterbrook’s unique “Re-New-Point” interchangeable nibs, in production from 1935, the height of the Depression, until approximately 1942. They featured stainless steel trim and were very solidly made. In full length and girth and of black celluloid, they cost $1, but also appeared in other colors and sizes for a bit more.
