Some mixed information: The description says in one spot that he had two Cross pens, then in the next paragraph that it was a Parker pen and pencil set. Dentals say they don't know whether it's an upper or lower plate, but description says upper. (I wonder whether that means he had no teeth? Otherwise couldn't they tell by looking?)
