What do you mean by jewels. Cap and barrel jewels of J models?

It has always seemed to me that the closest Sheaffer to the Parker 45 is the Stylist, though I think Sheaffer was aiming at the Parker 61 from the arrow.  And the two-sided nib (though some had tubular small Triumph nibs, and some had slipper nibs). Some samples of each here.  I have a hard time telling the two pens apart without seeing the clip.

PS please note the Sears pen on the right in the second photo, with the Sheaffer slipper nib.

I think you have it right, jspen765.
