Moore Tuscan, Model Or Color?

Can anyone tell me if the Moore Tuscan refers to a specific pen model or a color? It seems that I have seen ring tops, flat tops, and pens of various sizes called Tuscan. So is Tuscan the rich redish brown or a model of pen? During what years was the red brown color used?

Moore introduced the line with this page in their 1925 catalog.

These show some variation in color, but still basically a tile red.

An auction for an L-96 closed a few minutes ago. The pen lacked the crown that Moore mentions above. Made me suspicious.

 

For reference, they came with either a red section...

or a black section.

I used to have one. It belonged to a relative. I believe Tuscan refers to the color, not the size/shape. It's also a line of their pens, but I think the models would be the numbers on the cap (i.e. L-93) It's like a brownish orange.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
