If a Bird Opens its Eyes at Night, Does Anyone See it?

Does this look familiar?


When it showed up in an online auction, I was hoping no one else would think so, but I ended up paying a fair price for it (as Rob Bader would say, I was hoping to pay an unfair price).

This is actually one of the WASP (W. A. Sheaffer Pen) "Birdseye" series.  Here it is shown alongside one that isn't black:


In addition to being the first one I've encountered in black, it's also the first I've encountered with this unusual imprint:


All black, running around with an imprint that also partly conceals its identity.  Kind of like a ninja birdseye, isn't it?
