Spool cabinet saves space

Today I located a spool cabinet that essentially provides twice the space of a machinists tool chest.  I think it looks pretty nice too.

Can anyone tell me if this marking has a designation put there by Parker of is it someone's cryptic personalization?





Can anyone tell me any thing about this Skrip bottle?

I think it's made out of wood but it might be hard rubber or some other kind of plastic..

Sheaffer Full Size Lifetime Feathertouch

When I saw this in the showcase at the antique store with a price of $42.29, I thought there must be a missing nib or tipping, or something else very wrong with it, especially since it was sitting next to a very small Sheaffer Balance with a price of 150.  When I checked it out, it looked like it was in pretty good condition.  No cracks, only one small place with brassing on the cap ring.  The lighting in those places never is very good but I figured it was worth the price so I got it. It even feels like the ink sac is still pliable.  When I got home, I noticed that the white dot was recessed.  That seems strange.  Does any one know if that was normal or did someone mess with it?  It looks to me like it is from the early 1940's.
