Found this recently, and am very interested to read what others think-- the only thing I could find is a little blurb on Richard Binder's site (on his personal collection pages). Like his, mine is the Skyline color dubonnet red, but mine has a different nib. Instead of his Skyline-looking nib, mine has the earlier style breather hole and font, but no "Gold Seal" text. Couple of additional points: the colored part of the section is burgundy to match the body, and the body imprint is "WAHL EVERSHARP" and on a second line "MADE IN USA"

Very nice broad manifold nib...

Any insight would be appreciated!

They came in maroon, black and (I believe) navy blue. I say "I believe" because I've got a couple and I've never been completely sure whether it's navy blue or faded black.

They came with and without gold seals - at least on the pencils.

As far as a name for them goes, I don't think anyone knows. This one has come up before, with no resolution on that point. I'd say it falls chronologically in the transitional era between the Doric and the Skyline.

Thanks, Jon.

Been enjoying this, even if it has no name!
