Can someone ID this Wearever I scored for cheap on eBay. I'm currently in the process of restoring it. The pens seems to be made of celluloid and it is faceted with 8 sides. And is a flat top. Lever filler. Screw on cap.

I think you are right. The lack of that caged nib was really throwing me off until I discovered that the nib it came with was a custom ground right oblique stub. I originally thought it was a broken nib and I decided to look up how to grind a stub (I thought "well since its tipping broke off I'll grind a stub out of it) and an idea hit and a second inspection of that nib revealed it was an stub. Really weird
