Hi everyone. I recently acquired a fountain pen but i do not know the model. Can anyone help me identify this model? I am thinking it is a Townsend since it has a distinct double ring on the cap. But on its clip, it has an ornament or a symbol.

It's a Cross Townsend that Cross made for a specific company who wanted their company logo on the clip. Whoever owns that logo is the company that asked Cross to make however many pens they wanted with that logo on there.

 

(for next time you may want to know it's not necessary to type all of your question into the title box instead of typing it in your post before you add your images. e.g. Can anyone identify this Cross would have been enough of a title)

can anyone identify the organization from the logo? Just curious.

This does get this year's award for the best 'stream of consciousness' thread title......  ;)

 

Nice pen.  I have several Townsends.  All are excellent writers.

Not me, but a fun time waster (or awesome business tool, depending on your point of view) is the US Patent and Trademark Office search tool: https://tmsearch.uspto.gov/

These are the closest I could find.  Apparently they display Celtic knots.....  I haven't been able to find any company logo like it though.

 Close and quite elegant, imho. And it is not the same as displayed on the Townsend.

Thank you for doing the research.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
