This Sheaffer PFM V measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 5 5/8" posted.

I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, section, and feed. Hand polished the Stainless cap trim Palladium Silver Nib. I have cleaned, buffed, polished & waxed the barrel, cap, and blind cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the material of the fountain pen. The Polished Stainless Trim on the Cap is in excellent condition with no wear, dings or denting. This Sheaffer Pen has been disassembled, cleaned and inspected for any defects before reassembling.

Installed a new silicone sac, o-ring, and point seal - all been replaced with correct reproduction parts. I have tested the filling mechanism with water and fills as it should.

The Sheaffer Palladium Silver Inlay NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .72mm when measured with digital calipers. The NIB writes with a fine to broad line/stroke. In the writing sample provided, this NIB stroke measures from .58mm to .93mm 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. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.

Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.

This Sheaffer PFM I is one super classy fountain pen It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection. I would consider this Sheaffer PFM I to easily grade in Excellent+ Condition. Certainly, a collector grade that is ready to write with or add to your writing arsenal collection!
