I came upon what appears to be a NOS Eversharp pen that I cannot identify. It is a bit larger than a Slim Ventura (bottom pen), with a larger nib and came with a "Fine-Flex" sticker. Both the clip and the nib say "Made in USA, Eversharp". Any ideas as to the model name and approximate date of this pen?

I finally found the answer. It's an Eversharp Ventura/Symphony. According to Teri Morris this pen has a "Ventura cap, but the body and nib looks like a late lever filler Symphony. We've seen this combination before but it's unclear if this is something Eversharp created to use up parts or if this is a unique model. (Sometimes the Ventura is called the Symphony Model 4.)

Manufacturer and Year Eversharp, made in USA -- 1953-7, these are the years the Ventura was produced."

Just an update. Found this article on the Ventura at the Richard Binder website:
