Welcome home.

The first pen is one of the Imperials and looks like a cartridge converter version. Check here for more information and model number.

The second looks like it might be an Award,

Is it a Touchdown fill pen? Does the back of the body unscrew to expose a wide tube?

If not, it is more likely the Triumph-Imperial cartridge pen. In either case it is likely a $40.00 to $60.00 pen.

The bottom part does unscrew to reveal a wide tube! Does this mean it is worth more?

Thanks

Maybe, but the condition will really determine value. Cartridge/converter pens are pretty straight forward but a touchdown pen will likely need a new sac and gaskets. It will still likely be in the same value range, maybe a $10.00 difference.
