I got this Titanium Cross fountain pen back in the 80s I think from Franklin Covey. It may have still been Franklin Quest back then. I'm trying to figure out the model. The nib is 14k and there is a number just above the threads of the feed tube: 0385A0278, and there is a 585 just beneath the second S in Cross on the nib. Did they make the Townsend back then? Care to guess a value? I included a couple photos. Thanks. Terry

Yea, I think it was actually called gun metal when I got it. Definitely not black. Thank you for confirming Townsend.
