Help W/ Id Of 2 Snorkels With Open Nibs

1. One reason I am confused on the this set is because although the pen and pencil match the pen has a Clipper label and the pencil has a Sentinel label. They are black with a two tone cap and a white dot,. Cap is silver with a repeating pattern of 4 graduated lines. It has a gold clip (no name on it) and gold band. The nib is an open, two toned, 14k, F3. It measures 5 5/8" long. (pictures 1,2 & 3)
2. Is black with a silver cap & gold clip. The design on the cap is a repeating pattern of a squiggly line between two straight lines. The nib is an open, two toned, 14k, m3. It measure 5 5/8" long. (pictures 4 & 5)
I am hoping for proper identification and year of production.... and always appreciate addition information and comments. (I can add more pictures tomorrow if needed)
As always... thank you for your time,

The last two, the ones without cap bands that say Sheaffer'S on the clips, look like Sovereigns to me.
The first pair is indeed interesting. Maybe that's a Sentinel or Clipper cap on a Sovereign body? I just thought Clippers and Sentinels both had Triumph nibs, PdAg and 14k, respectively
I know my id is "mhosea", but you can call me Mike. It's an old Unix thing.
