Hello,

 

The pen below is a slender type, bears the 875 price code, but doesn't seem to fall into either Short or Standard length category.

It measures:

12,9 cm capped

11,7 cm uncapped
5,85 cm - cap length

38mm - clip length

 

It actually looks like the cap and the barrel are not really the original set. Was there any irregular length 73 Lifetime pen or it's just a mixture of two different models? Or maybe the expression "the right size for the Milady's handbag" didn't mean the same all the time?

And would a First Lady/Lady Sheaffer cap on a Sovereign barrel be enough to justify the size of the capped pen or it should be, say, First Lady cap on the later Vigilant barrel?

Is the end of the barrel - as per the 1941 Repairmen manual - the New Style Tapered end?

 

What do you think? Maybe someone can actually check which swap among Slender pens could give a 12,9 cm specimen?

Thanks in advance for any answers, hints or ideas,

Regards,

Maciek

Still interested in any help or hint on this one :-)

 

Additional info:

 

The barrel diameter is around 10,8 cm, approx 4,25"

The cap external diameter is around 12 mm, approx 4,72"

 

Anyone own both First Lady and Vigilant to is if it could be the solution to this mistery?

 

TIA and Regards,

Maciek
