Here are two model names that I haven't seen before.  Bennett Bros catalog page, supposedly 1941.

The Select-O-Point pen looks identical to the Victory, save for the clip.  The Wahl Oxford in the bottom left corner is mis-described.

This actually solves the problem of naming the previously uncatalogued pen with a Gold Seal Emblem (the last Gold Seal pen that preceded the Skyline) - based on this ad, the model name is VICTORY and it's pictured in the third row, on far left. Select-O-Point OTOH, was a Wahl Oxford model that was made to compete with Esterbrook's Renew-Point system and offered interchangeable nibs. (I'll try to find some photos of both models, but before I do that, the Eversharp Victory has been pictured on Richardspens on page 13 of Richard's Collection). Quite cool to actually find out the name of the Victory so many thanks for sharing!
