Esterbrook Nurses Pen — dated August 5, As you can see below, the Nurses Pen looking pen came to me in quite a state of disrepair and was very dirty. As discussed in the past, these probably date to the s and are larger in size to the standard pastel pens.

The previous nurses pen that I restored August 5, post had black jewels. This pen comes with red jewels, similar to some nurses pens, presumably to hold red ink. This one is a bit different as we will see below. First for the cleanup and restoration. I started by soaking the barrel, cap and nib unit in an ultrasonic cleaner. Make sure to do each separately, as the ink from each can stain the outside of the barrel and cap and make the job that much harder. After the ultrasonic clean, I scrubbed the outside and inside of the barrel and cap with scratch remover and a dremel at low speed.

This did a remarkable job on the outside of cleaning things up. The inside of the cap was caked with ink and required repeated doses of water and q tip as well as small toothbrush. Cleaning the entire cap inside is necessary to prevent the barrel and barrel threads of getting dirty again. I use a toothbrush and ink nix on the barrel threads and it does a great job of cleaning them thoroughly, even when white. The nib unit cleaned up well with a combination of the ultrasonic and a jewelers cloth.

The finished result is below. The interesting facets of this pen are the two imprints. Please read this link for a few newspaper articles regarding the organization and some of its endeavors. My guess is that this pen, conveniently purchased or provided by its local neighbor Esterbrook, was given to bowlers who achieved a average, or score. I have not seen others, but I wonder if they were all white, or if other colors were used as well.

Given the production period of these pens, this would have occurred in the 50s in Camden. Another interesting side note that ties the two companies together is that when Esterbrook moved out of Camden in , they sold their old factory buildings to RCA. Here is a closeup of the red cap end.

Finally, this pen top next to the black ended nurses pen from my collection. Esterbrooks are very common and highly collectible pens that are quite easy to restore.

Even more interesting are the variants that pop up from time to time. As I have mentioned in the past, please visit Esterbrook. Share this:
