Hi all, I'm looking to you experts to help me determine what I bought at the local flea market last weekend. I really can't tell for certain, but it writes quite nicely! I do need to find a proper cap though...(this is only an extra I had in the drawer.) The limited information i was able to find makes me think it's a Skripsert. El cheapo pen, but the back end of the pen is flat, not round and is slightly tapered. Nib is silver toned, says Sheafer and takes cartridges. Is there something else this could be? Where would I find a cap? Any and all information, suggestions, guesses are great

One of the sellers had another pen that's currently sitting at 1 bid and $13. Ends tomorrow (In about 15 hours). The only detail given is it's a "Sheaffer Imperial Grey" and has a 14k nib. From a quick google search, I -think- it looks like a 1964 model because of an ad I stumbled on, but it's hard to tell. http://i.ebayimg.com/t/Vintage-SHEAFFER-GREY-IMPERIAL-U-S

The Snorkel has captivated my eye because it has this beautiful upturned conical nib, and has a interesting filling system. However, when it comes to recommended pens for workhorse candidates, I see many responses being the Lamy 2000, Namiki Falcon, Lamy Safari, etc. I've had these before, and I have
