Identifying This Sheaffer Imperial Something Or Another

Howdy, I'm currently waiting for bidding to close on this pen:

REALLY bad image, but it the best overall shot on the auction.

 

So the guy has it listed as an Imperial 330 - Afaik, the shape could possibly be, but I wasn't aware they came in Touchdown and I can't find anything to suggest they did with a google search.

 

The 14k nib also gave me pause, but that could just potentially be because he did a nib swap.

 

Is this just an Imperial IV that's been incorrectly identified? Also, the colour is just really washed out in that pic, it is actually golden coloured.

 

Also, this will be my last "help me figure out this pen" because, god help me, I'll have a sheaffer imperial by the end of this week if it kills me :P

Imperial 4 is close, but the clip looks a little too short. Here are some photos of that model ...

True, it does look a little short. Maybe it's possible that it's a cap from a 330, but body / section from a IV?

Entirely possible. You're right that Triumph 330 didn't appear as a TD filler, but the caps are easily transposed and the body definitely matches Imperial IV/VI/VIII spec.

The 550 might be the source of the cap ....
