For your consideration, we are offering for sale this vintage circa 1959 Sheaffer PFM I Snorkel Fountain Pen in Burgundy. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned and put back together and now is in wonderful operating and writing condition.

I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB section and breather tube. Hand polished the silver trim and PdAg white nib. There is no brassing to any of the trim areas.

This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs. There are no monograms on the barrel. The barrel has the original chalk markings. The cap is stamped with, "SHEAFFER Made in U.S.A." This Sheaffer PFM I measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 5 5/8" posted.

Installed a new rubber sac; the o-ring and point seal have all been replaced with correct reproduction parts. This Sheaffer Pen has been disassembled, cleaned and inspected for any defects before reassembling. The snorkel tube moves freely and draws ink as it should.

The PdAg white NIB has a fine point measuring roughly .52mm when measured with digital calipers. The NIB writes extremely smooth for a Fine Point. In the writing sample provided, this NIB writes with a fine line which measures roughly .58mm when measuring with a digital caliper. 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 Parker Quink Blue-Black Ink.

Lastly, this Sheaffer PFM I comes in the original presentation box. Overall the box is in very good, solid condition.

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 hard to find in this condition with Chalk Marks and the Original Presentation Box. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection. I would consider this Sheaffer PFM I in Near Mint Condition and certainly a collector grade piece that should be cherished in a deserving collection.
