Please Help With Identifying Two Cross Townsend Lapis Lazuli

Please help with identifying (and maybe dating, first of all) my two Cross Townsend Lapis Lazuli, which look a bit different.

The differences are most in disign of nibs and feeds, but also in serial numbers (on section thread). Also, prints on caps are different, "Cross - USA" and "Cross Made in USA" respectively.

I`ve been told, that nibs of Townsends were made by Pelikan, but I cant idenify wich one (or both maybe)? But nibs are quite different, the F nib is much more rigid than M (with "curvy" tins).

Thanks

Thanks a lot!

Indeed, now I noticed that there is a thickening on the back of the nib closer to the top, just like Pilot nibs.

That's interesting. I didn't know cross used makers other than sailor.

 

Do we know who made the nib on the spire? It's a damn fine writer, but does feel very pelikan-ish.

 

That lapis townsend finish is amazing. I can't wait to get my platinum guilloche back from repair
