Hi Sheaffer Fans!

 

I've got a pretty simple question here: Are the earlier Imperial (IV,VI,VIII, etc) caps compatible with the later style (440,550,777,etc) pens? Are the metal caps the same as the plastic ones internally?

 

Thanks!

Yes, the caps on Imperial and on Triumph pens are interchangable.

Not to be confused with the Triumph pens with the conical nibs...
