CIRCA 1959 SHEAFFER BURGUNDY PFM III SNORKEL FOUNTAIN PEN RESTORED For Sale
CIRCA 1959 SHEAFFER BURGUNDY PFM III SNORKEL FOUNTAIN PEN RESTORED:
For your consideration, we are offering for sale this vintage circa 1959 Sheaffer PFM III Burgundy Snorkel Fountain Pen with Gold Filled Trim. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, put back together, and now is in wonderful operating and writing condition.
The PFM came in five principal models, varying by cap and trim color. What we have here is the PFM III. The PFM models below for your reference:
PFM I - Single color plastic cap and barrel, polished stainless steel clip and cap band, and palladium silver nib. The PFM I is the only model without the White Dot.
PFM II - Frosted stainless steel cap and plastic barrel, polished stainless steel clip and cap band, and palladium silver nib.
PFM III - Single color plastic cap and barrel, gold-filled clip and cap band, and a 14kt gold nib.
PFM IV - Stainless steel cap and plastic barrel, gold-filled clip and plunger cap end plate, and a 14kt gold nib.
PFM V - Gold plated cap and plastic barrel, gold-filled clip and plunger cap end plate, and a 14kt gold nib.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs. The cap is a friction fit type that secures tightly to the barrel each time. There are no monograms or personalizations on either the cap or barrel of the fountain pen. The fountain pen cap lip is stamped with, \"SHEAFFER Made in U.S.A.\" This Sheaffer PFM III measures 5 3/8\" in length capped and 5 5/8\" posted.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, section, and feed. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Cap Banding, and 14K Gold Fine Nib. The Sheaffer White Dot is securely attached to the clip. I have cleaned, buffed, and polished the barrel, cap, and blind cap to bring back the vibrancy and protect the material of the fountain pen. Installed a new rubber sac, o-ring, and point seal - all have been replaced with correct reproduction parts. This Sheaffer Pen has been disassembled, cleaned, and inspected for any defects before reassembling.
The PFM has the Snorkel Touchdown Filling System. We replaced the point seal, o-ring, and added a new rubber sac. The snorkel tube moves freely and the Touchdown filling system draws ink as it should.
The Sheaffer 14K Gold Inlay NIB has a Fine point measuring roughly .52mm when measured with digital calipers. The NIB writes with a fine to medium line/stroke. In the writing sample provided, this line variations measures from .48mm to .74mm when measuring with digital calipers. The nib performs very smoothly when creating the writing sample. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. I have tested the filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Montblanc Blue Ink.
This Sheaffer PFM III is hard to find in this condition which is excellent with bright gold-filled trim. It is ready to write or just add to your writing arsenal collection. I would consider this Sheaffer PFM III to easily grade in Excellent Condition and certainly a collector-grade fountain pen that is ready to write with or add to your writing arsenal collection!
