Does anyone know what Eversharp Pencil Line Model #1713 and Pen Model #713 refer to?

It explains the numbers assigned to different models of the Symphony.

Thanks from me as well.  I have a Symphony (I think) which I picked up about a year ago (an antiques mall find; actually my husband -- the non-FP user -- spotted it first).  It turned out that the sac was still good, and it's a very nice writer.

The fountain pen that initiated my obsession was a first generation (500)  Eversharp Symphony which I found in my mother-in-law's things.  They aren't that well known, so bargains can be found. I've got three 500's, a 701, a 703, and a 715.   The nibs are usually excellent!
