Part of the Skyline family.  I don't know if it is covered in detail on Richard Binder's page: http://richardspens.com/?prof=skyline

 

If memory serves, it was a less-expensive option to the GF-capped capped versions.

 

Best Regards, greg


Don't feel bad. I'm old; I'm meh about most things.

I think you might be right because I saw a pen very similar to the one I have with the description: "Evidence is sketchy at best, but I think it likely that the model shown here, a school pen whose model name appears to be lost, stayed in production at least into the first year or two after America entered World War II. It is modern in style, and similar enough to the Skyline that it might have been the pen that inspired Henry Dreyfuss to go one better."

In general terms, the pens that have a similar profile to the Skyliner but don't have the trim band going up and over the top of the derby are Streamliners, a lower-price line of pens. However, there are a number of variants with stockier barrels that are part of the family but not well documented. You can see other threads discussing these pens, such as this one:
