    Mismatched Sheaffer Targa?

    I have been checking eBay for a pencil in order to complete a Sheaffer Targa set. While searching for Targa's today, I found a listing with title 'Vintage "Sheaffer Targa" Mechanical Pencil-Blue/Green Marbled- Made in USA 1980s', http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Sheaffer-Targa-Mechanical-Pencil-Blue-Green-Marbled-Made-in-USA-1980s-/141319998470?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20e7540c06. I started admiring Sheaffer Targa ballpoint pens, pencils, rollerball pens, and fountain pens (I like having sets) during the 1980's. Since I had examined Sheaffer Targa's during many visits to pen stores as well as viewed Sheaffer Targa's in catalogs produced by many pen stores (great pictures!), I became very familiar with Sheaffer Targa's during my years in college and graduate school when I could not afford to buy them. Since pen catalogs include several series by pen makers, I became familiar with other Sheaffer series as well; Sheaffer Targa pens/pencils and Sheaffer Connaisseur pens are those I know by sight/characteristics and by name. During all the years of admiring Sheaffer pens/pencils, especially Targa's and Connaisseur's, I have never seen a mismatched (blue top and green striped bottom) Sheaffer pen or pencil like this one. In addition, based on the various Targa pencils that I own and those which I have examined in the past, I have never seen a Sheaffer Targa pencil with innards (plastic overlay for bottom section of pencil rather than full metal section topped with eraser) as displayed in the seventh picture in this listing; the inside of the top cap does not match top sections for Targa's that I own or those I have examined as well. While I have no intention of purchasing this pencil, I am curious if it is, indeed, mismatched as well as to what series this pencil belongs; unless there are other Sheaffer Targa's which I have never seen in person or in printed catalogs, this pencil is not a Targa as the top and pen clip are not those of a Targa. Since I am not a Sheaffer expert, I thought that I would ask the FPN membership about this pencil. Is this pencil mismatched? To what series does this pencil (and/or its top and bottom) belong? Thanks! : )
