    Default Esterbrook LJ

    A buddy of mine got an Esterbrook LJ for me in copper color. I know these were made in the 1943 range or so. Do you know when they stopped making them? I'm trying to figure out when my pen was made.

    Brian Anderson's Esterbrook.net should have the answer to your question, plus it's a nice site to learn various facts about Esterbrook pens.

    I learned enough on Brian Anderson's site that I got really hooked for a while. It is a great resource for Esterbrook, and it is a very important resource for the hobby. The pictures are pretty too.

    The copper is a beautiful color in the J series.

    I agree, it is a great site. I still did not find the manufacture date. I know it is in the 50's, and that is about it. I don't know when they stopped making the LJ either. Maybe I missed it on Brian's site. I also looked at Richard's site too.

    I don't know when they stopped making the LJ, but I do have copies of Esterbrook ads from September, 1956, which clearly indicate that they were still making them at that time.
