Kashmir Pearl 5 3/16"capped, 5/8" wide at the 'wide, 3 row, pierced' cap band, 1/2" barrel. Roller clip, #7 adjustable nib. Lever fill.

I cant seem to figure out how to add pics.

Thank you for the assistance

I think what you described is about as close to a'model' there is, as I don't think they had model numbers exactly.

I can tell you it's a 1st generation though (kashmir being one of the earlier and most fragile colors to date, made from 1931-1935), since the band isn't to the lip of the cap and there's no "gold seal" on the cap. I had one with an Adjustable #3 nib. Due to cap lip chippings, my cap band shows a bit closer to the lip. The 2nd generation were right at the lip to prevent such problem.

A #7 would be a fair bit larger.

I'd call it a treasure, considering how fragile those nibs are.
