I have mentioned several times that apparently only one of the Capless models saw a transparent version, although it was never for sale. But a pen as original as the Capless, although it was not the first retractile nib in history, deserves some additional descriptions. Pilot’s museum Pen Station, located at the company’s headquarters in Chuo ward in Tokyo, does provide them by displaying some cut-away units:

C-600MW, November 1963.
And a variation on this model: no clip, urushi finish (C-1000W, from 1964):

C-200SW, August 1964.

C-250SS, May 1968.

C-400BS, June 1971.

FC-15SR, December 1998.

FCF-2MR, September 2006.

My thanks to my friend Haywoody, who gave me the idea for this post.
