It is the Cross Century.

 

Not Century Classic or Classic Century. To be exaxt: Century. No other words. In its model name it follows the mechanical pencil introduced in 1946 and called the Century because 1946 is 100 years later than the date Cross gives as the date of the company's founding.

 

When, somewhat belatedly compared with some other manufacturers, Cross introduced a ballpoint pen, the one in your illustrations, it was the 1950s already and no longer 100 years from the founding, but Cross called it the Century.  That is also the model name of the slim fountain pen Cross introduced in the early 1980s.

 

Until some time after World War II, Cross was primarily a manufacturer of mechanical pencils, sold under its own name, and pencil movements, sold to other manufacturers and incorporated into their own products without any mention of Cross.

Thank you very much, Jerome Tarshis!

 

But the curious and intriguing thing about this Cross pen is that I can't find a picture on the Internet!

I didn't find any pen with the golden top button!

By the way, it's a very rare ballpoint pen!

I discovered the "riddle"! Someone made the gold button and put it in the pen! It's not an original Cross button!
