About This Model
Esterbrook Dollar pens were their second series of fountain pens, after the V-Clips. The Dollars were named for their price in 1934, when they first appeared. They came in three sizes, full-size (B), slender (A), and demi (H). Some of the earlier pens were made of hard rubber, although celluloid was predominant. Their trim, unlike the later Js, was of nickel plated metal, not stainless steel. In 1942, the caps became bandless in the war economy, until 1946, when the J Family pens superceded them altogether.
