I am still looking.  The sj is 121 mm and has 2 button jewels.  The sj transitional (The one I need.) is 118 and has one button and the barrel has none and is flat.  If you have the sj transitional, I am interested.  Thanks

My bad; after seeing "SJ" specified three times, I took the unspecified "black transitional" to mean non-SJ.

 

Good luck on your auction.

Hey, guess what I found in my box of pens today?  It's not a toaster top, but I do have a last generation black tran SJ that I'm working on now.  If you're interested, I'll post a pic when I'm done.  It was really dirty.  The cap was about the texture of 600 grit sandpaper.

 

Update - Here it is...

Thanks Gweimer,  but I have that one.  I'm looking for the sj demi (smaller that an sj).

I've never seen anything listed as an sj demi. Is that the purse pen?

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

And I'm coming to SF.  Meet me at the airport with the Maltese Falcon.

 

Corgicoupe,  I don't know what the real name is.  Any help out there on this question?

I have an SJ transitional.  It is small.  Loading up the skeet thrower.

Good luck in your hunt Larry. Just picked up my first transitional (a J) in blue.

 

I now have a transitional J (round jewel-blue), SJ (red), LJ-(black Bell Systems pen) and 3 J's (black, gray, green)

Good for you!  Thanks, I'll need a lot of luck.  They really are pretty, sturdy, and with the right (inexpensive) nib, good writers.
