Hi guys! In one of my most recent trips to my grandpa's house, he noticed the fountain pens I was carrying, and to my delight he used to have some himself! He looked around the house, and could only find this, which he gave to me:

It is an unidentified Sheaffer 14k gold nib, possibly extra fine, which writes beautifully and takes Sheaffer cartridges. That's about all the information I have on it though. I would really really REALLY love to find replacements to the missing parts, so that I can have this beautiful pen up and running again as one of my daily writers. This holds tremendous sentimental value for me due to the fact that my grandpa gave it to me, and I'd love to fully restore it to usable condition.

Any help in pointing to the right direction will be GREATLY appreciated. thanks in advance guys!

Probably a Stylist of a later sort (I've only got pictures of the early ones, but you can get an idea of the shape of pen you're looking for).  There's not vast numbers of them running around, but they're also not usually going for very high prices.  A similar section also showed up in Lady Sheaffers of about the same age, but it's less likely a grandfather will have been using one of them.

Oh, good heavens. He's got a blog now, too.

Thank you so much for your reply! I tried googling both pens, but I'm not having any luck finding any parts for either. Do you have any idea where I may find these, or am I better off just machining a new body and cap out of aluminum or brass?
