They took the blue from the skies and the pretty girls' eyes and a touch of Old Glory too . . .

Very cool, looks like it might be a broad-ish nib too.  Thanks for sharing!

I highly doubt it originally came with a dip-less desk base though.

So, that's what that base is, Dipless.

Never have found any indication of what a 'correct' base is for these.

It's a desk pen, you would want a base for the pen.  No reason that the original owner couldn't have bought the items individually and used them together.  No converter.  No cap, so it needs a base.
