Picked up an old flat top #46 Special with an "F" on the barrel end. I don't see that the celluloid is discolored really - just some shrinking around the ends. Silicon sac or regular sac with the orange celluloid?

Any pictures? Some early red Sheaffer 46 Specials were RHR or even casein...
Love the early non lifetime nib Sheaffers! If it's casein a silicone sac would be a bad idea I think.

Nothing as rare as that - this is the orange celluloid material. It is a stamdard sized rather than a slim pen. Doing a re-sac and wanted to know whether silicone is necessary or whether the orange is ok with rubber.
