Cap To Something, But No Pen.

Okay... I have somehow acquired a flat top black Sheaffer pen cap, but I've never had the pen. Can anyone tell me what is supposed to sit under this cap, please? And, how difficult is finding a pen? The ball on the clip is flat. There is a slight hump on the clip. Flat top and a single gold band.

So, what's your point?

Looking in Glen Bowen's book, "Collectible Fountain Pens:, Sheaffer brought out some flat tops with clips like yours in 1935. There was a Feather Touch, a #3-25 and a Lifetime too, but your cap doesn't have a white dot does it? Happy hunting!

No, my cap has no white dot. So, thinking I need to find photos of a 1935 #3-25 and a Feather Touch. Let's see what happens...

 

Thanks Pen Lady!!! :D :D :D :D

Based on the cap band and the low placed clip this is a late 5-30 so it likely came with a 5 feather touch nib. Flatball clip is mid 1930s which is after the 5-30 nib was discontinued.
