Does the Sonnet Athens have a solid gold cap band?

The Sonnet Athens is 23K Gold Plated. On http://parkerpens.net/sonnet.html he refers to the nib being solid gold but the reference to the cap band is only to distinguish it from the other Sonnets of that time which had the skinny cap band.

That is the makers' mark and not a hallmark.
