I know this pen is Sheaffer, It is a white dot series.  I looked at all of the pictures, and it looked like the pen never had a clip (no holes on any side of the cap for a clip).

The questions:

What year/model is it?

I am familiar with, and repair lever fills, but this one kind of looks like some kind of piston fill mechanism.  How do you fill this pen?

 

I appreciate all who answer.  This is my first Sheaffer, all my other older pens are Waterman's, Pilots, and Montblancs.  I am far outside of my experience.

It looks like a Tuckaway (Triumph model) from the 1940s.

Many thanks Crescentfiller and Joss, your keen eye for detail and insight put me on the path to be better educated concerning the different models.
