I just received a Wasp Vacuum-Fill Addipoint pen that turns out to have a broken ring clip.  Its probably from the early 1940s. Pictures are shown below.

Before I destroy the cap trying to remove the broken clip.  Can anyone help with the following:


1.   Is the jewel on this pen friction fit, or threaded? Can I just carefully pry it off?  Was it glued?

2.   How is the clip removed? Do I have to remove the inner cap, or just the jewel to removed it?

3.   Do you know a good source for a replacement?


Thanks ahead of time.


Note, that I also posted this in the Sheaffer forum, but with no responses.
