This could be proof Sheaffer stole the white dot from Parker. I agree, it can stay in the Parker forum.

The white dot makes this pen late 1924 though ribbon chase does predate.  Nice pen.

Of course; obvious and consequently, post WD (I want to remember first use in Sept. 25, 1924) and this particular model in hard rubber, from 1923 with this characteristic ribbon band. Maybe I gave too many things for known. Thanks for the feedback.

Lovely pen.

Ribbon lined flat top is always my favourite.

I`ve got two so far:

one oversize and one stubby size

The stubby one seems to be earlier, with finless feed and "LIFETIME PEN" nib.

I really do love the "spear" feeds -- those are both lovely pens!!

  I have special attraction for delicacy of this perforated one.

As posted elsewhere, but relevent: 1923 B85C OS HR "ribbon lined", non-WD. Nice touch is the wider band:

The wave chasing has a design patent for the 46 Special - so, yes it's a 46 Special (regardless of any nib that might be in it now).
