Hello.
I have recently been going through my family's old pen collection and came across a pen that has confused me as to its model.
It appears to be a Recife Crystal, however, as minor as it is, its cap appears to be missing the signature "wings" (as I will call them) that the clips on the Recife Crystal. Instead it is just a normal clip which a generic straight edged shape, while all pictures of it show little wings that go out where the clip starts and come back in about a third of the way down.

Here is a link to a page with a bunch of different colors/versions of the Recife Crystal: http://www.stylusfin...l-fountain-pen/

All pictures with a wood background are the pen that I have, you will quickly notice that the picture I found online of the "Recife Crystal" have the wings that I speak of on the clip, while mine does not.

Maybe they just changed the cap design over time.

Hmm, it does seem that way.
It is an oddly subtle thing to change like that.
Thanks
