What particular model is it and is it a good pen? I'm not even sure what kind of filler it has... I'll upload more photos when I get the pen.

It is likely an Imperial of some sort.
 
The inlaid nib is a great writer. This pen will use a converter or a cartridge.
 
I used one on my desk for over 25 years and was always please with it.
 
Enjoy the pen.

Likely to be a cartridge pen circa 1960's.  Should write as fine as any other Sheaffer of the era.  Not particularly valuable.

It is a triumph 330, 440 thpe inlaid nibbed pen. A very good writer.

I bought two pens. One is a medium nib, the other is a fine nib. The line on paper is very very close but the Medium is noticeably smoother.

P6 (on the box) is the model number of the pen.  It's listed in this 1973 Sheaffer catalog, but since yours was made by Sheaffer Eaton, it must date to 1976 or after.

It's listed price is $12.50 for just the pen which is...about 60 plus dollars today. Cool!
