    Default unknown Sheaffer Skripsert (Lady?) model

    I recently acquired this Sheaffer which looks like a clipless Sheaffer Skripsert Lady but what it makes peculiar is that it is a Touchdown instead of cartridge filler:

    I thought that the Sheaffer Skripsert Lady came as a cartridge pen only. Also the wavy line pattern is not shown in the Sheaffer Skripsert Lady reference list at Sheaffertarga.com (www.sheaffertarga.com).

    The nib and cap lip are both marked "Sheaffer's".

    Are there Sheaffer Skripsert experts out there that can identify this model?

    Do they show up now? I possibly included a wrong link.

    No they don't. Suggest you try going back and editing the original link in your post.

    I included them now as an attachment instead of figure, hope this works.

    It might be called a Sheaffer Lady Touchdown, but I agree with you that Skripserts are cartridge fillers so it shouldn't have that as part of it's name. Sorry but I don't know the pattern.

    Thank you for your comments. I am still looking for more info on this particular model and found this discussion at FPB on a Sheaffer "Skripsert-like" Touchdown with short conical nib and push-on cap (with clip):
    FPB blissful-ignorance-variants-of-tm-touchdown-not-seen-before/
    That model could not be identified either.
