For Sale: Retro 51, Esterbrook, Caran d’Ache

The photos in this post are all current. Feel free to contact me with any questions, although the first firm “I want it” gets the pen.

If you’re interested, reach me using [ray [@]] or contact form here.

U.S. shipping is $7.50. This is the cost for as many pens as will fit in the small flat-rate box

International shipping is available but very expensive. You can contact me for the cost, but even the low-cost countries start above $27. I require insurance & tracking for all international shipments.
