I won this triumph snorkel for $70 last night on a local auction site. The pen has no GF/GP marking anywhere on its body. So what model the pen would be? Were there golden body Triumph snorkels with no gold content marking whatsoevet and if yes what were these called by sheaffer? The pen is USA made.

Thanks in advance.


(Sorry for the low quality pics as provided by the seller. Obviously the pen hasn't yet arrived).

Snorkel Triumph is the name, basically. Gold-filled ones like this aren't marked, except for the 14K on the nib. The Masterpiece model, which was all 14K, had a bunch of 14K marks to erase any doubt.

So no marking at all? Even not a 12/14k GF? One more thing, is it gold plated or gold filled?
