Sheaffer Fat Touchdown Crest Deluxe Question

Recommended Posts

Hi experts

 

I just got a sheaffer fat touchdown crest, but it looks weird, or rared. It has a nib imprinted a serial number and a golden threaded section ring.

But from almost all the source I can access ( Sheaffer advertisement, online photos, etc.), it seems they built this generation of crest only with chrome threaded section rings. The only exceptional is a fat sentinel Deluxe, which with both golden threaded ring and serial number nib.

And I find that sheaffer manufactured some earlier triumph level filled pens with this kind of serial number nibs as well as golden threaded rings.

So I have 2 assumptions: 1. someone replaced my crest's nib and section set with one from a triumph level filled pen, would that be possible? Are the nib and section sets of post-war triumph and first year Touchdown interchangeable?

 

2. Sheaffer indeed manufactured some fat touchdowns with serial number nib and golden threaded rings, but in little amount .

 

I know sheaffer preferred to use golden threaded rings in their early triumph, but with "lifetime" but not serial number imprinted on the nib.

 

So could anyone suggest me some source or information about when and in which product lines sheaffer imprinted serial numbers on the nib and use golden threaded rings?

      @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.
