Size: Length - 125mm.
This is a beautiful pearlised blue J pencil. It is unusual to find Esterbrook pencils and this is in excellent condition. Both barrel and cap are beautifully glossy with no noticeable scratches or other damage. The top of the cap is decorated with a stepped black "jewel" with the little dimple in the centre which was peculiar to the pencils. The pocket clip is ribbed and chrome plated, as is the cap band. The only damage I can see on this pen is some slight foxing to the point. There is an imprint at the top of the barrel which is beautifully crisp and clear. The cap pulls off to reveal a storage area for spare leads. There would also have originally been an eraser fitted here, but this has unfortunately been lost over the years. The point is also chrome plated, and the forward end of the barrel is ribbed to afford a good positive grip. This is a clutch-type pencil. You depress the cap to open the clutch and allow the lead to advance. I have installed a fresh 1.18mm lead into the clutch so the pencil is all ready to go.
I have fully serviced this pencil. It works perfectly.
