Hello fellow fountain pen network members. I have only just started collecting vintage pens. Recently I purchased a vintage 14K solid gold Cross roller ball pen and a matching Cross 14K solid gold vintage pencil from two separate sellers, both appear to be in fine condition. Being a new collector please excuse me if this sounds like a basic question. My question relates to the engraved script. Both the pen and pencil have 14K marked on the shirt clip. On the top of the pen and pencil, both are marked CROSS 14k-GOLD MADE IN USA. Now, here is the difference between the two. On the pencil the U.S.A. Is separated by dots where as on the roller pen the USA is printed without the dots between the letters. Bare in mind I don't posses a jewellers magnifying loop but I do intend to re-check the pen when I can obtain one. In the mean time can any knowledgable forum members clarify for me whether Cross ever differentiated between the USA script dots or no dots between the USA engraving?, unfortunately most of the pictures I have seen on the internet do not show the USA script very clearly, mainly just the Made In!, any help I can get on this question would be greatly appreciated, thanks for you're time.
