COMMENTSWhere to start???  OK. This is the earliest style physician's set catalogued for the 100-Year, and is the second style  produced in any 100-Year pen.  Triple set has Pen, Pencil and Thermometer Case. This one is perfect regarding the three pieces.  The Thermometer certificate correlates to the thermometer including in the thermometer case,  It is noted that the presentation case is not perfect.  The platform holding the pens no longer is attached to the metal internal hinge, so must be moved to the propped position by hand.  Top satin is discolored. The warranty paper no longer adheres. May not be returned if inked or dipped. Original Sac. Might fill.

Point:  1555 fine firm Imprint:  Perfect Size: 4 1/2"
PRICE: $185
COMMENTS An outrageous package for the Estie aficianado.  The pen is mint and perfect.  The pouch (stamped with the Esterbrook log0) is more rare than the pen and is the only one i've seen to have  "jewels" embedded in the surfact (hope i'm not giving away any real diamonds, here- LOL).  Original instruction sheet included. The one has the only box i've handled for the purse pouch. You can see the cardboard portion in the photo, the plastic top piece (also stamped, "Esterbrook" was left out of the photo but is include, of course, in this sale. May not be returned if inked or dipped.

Pen 1941 Esterbrook Pastel Purse Pen in Yellow with Black End Jewels

Nib condition: Mint
Threads:  Mint clarity:    NA
Point:  1555 "Gregg" Imprint:  Mint Size: 4 1/2"
PRICE: $175 
COMMENTS:  Estie purse pens have come into their own and are appreciated for their charming pastel colors, high quality, reasonable price point, and readily swappable nib assemblies.  This one is a primo bright (light) yellow with perfect color in pristine condition. The travel purse pouch is more scarce than the pen and- in my admittedly somewhat limited exposure to Esties- is the only yellow/black i've handled. Fun Stuff. May not be returned if inked or dipped

COMMENTS:    Estie purse pens have come into their own and are appreciated for their charming pastel colors, high quality, reasonable price point, and readily swappable nib assemblies.  Part of a large lot of Esties acquired during the last few months, this one is rich (dark) green with lilac end jewels.  In Mint condition, it offers a nice alternative to the trashed cracked examples that crop up so often.

PRICE$205
COMMENTS:   It's near mint (mint save for having met ink). Color is perfect. Prie sticker still on bottom of pen. A gorgeous Lapis Conklin  "sub endura" a flat top in the style of Endura but without Endura markings (think non-white dot version of  Sheaffer white dot pen).

Pen 1874 Wahl-Eversharp Symphony. Blue with two-tone cap. Late 1940's
Successor to the Skyline. Nearmint Original Sticker/Band. FLEX NIB
  $135

Overall Grade: NearMint
Metal: Exc Color:  Exc CLICK FOR LARGER PIC
Nib condition: Exc 
Threads:  perfect clarity:    NA
Point:  Fine-Medium Imprint:  NA Size: 5 3/8"
PRICE: $145 
COMMENTS:  Symphony replaced the vaunted Wahl Skyline, and the barrel shape channels that earlier pen. The two tone metal cap enhances the eye appeal of this streamlined pen.   A pen of good quality, Symphony is somewhat underappreciated in the pendom community today.  This example has very nice flex and is a sound writer

Pen 1987 Wahl-Eversharp Symphony   $110  
Nearmint Stickered

Overall Grade: Nearmint
Metal: NM Color:  Exc CLICK FOR LARGER PIC
Nib condition: NM
Threads:  perfect clarity:    NA Plastic: Perfect
Point:  XF-F Imprint:  NA Size: 5 1/2"
PRICE: $110 
COMMENTS:  Symphony succeeed Skyline during the 1940's. Attractive pens, they are a bit undappreciate by today's collector. Presumably targeting the Parker "51", the Symphony never touched that pens popularity. Still, they are nicely styled pens of good quality. This one has original barrel sticker but has met ink, so is not mint.
