For your consideration, we are offering for sale this vintage circa 1959 New Old Stock Sheaffer PFM I Snorkel Fountain Pen & Pencil Set in Green. This fountain pen and pencil set are considered New Old Stock - Never Inked, except to dip test a writing sample.

This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs. There are no monograms or personalizations to the cap or the barrel. The fountain pen barrel has the original chalk markings that read, "PFM-1 FINE $10.00". The cap is stamped with, "SHEAFFER Made in U.S.A." This Sheaffer PFM I Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 5 5/8" posted. I have hand polished the silver trim and PdAg white nib. There is no brassing to any of the trim areas.

Installed a new rubber sac; the o-ring and point seal have all been replaced with correct reproduction parts. The pen has been disassembled, cleaned and inspected for any defects before reassembling. The filling unit works as it was designed to. The snorkel tube moves freely and draws ink (water) as it should.

The PdAg white NIB has a fine point measuring roughly .56mm 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 .45mm 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 Ink.

The PFM I Mechanical Pencil is in mint condition. It is operating as it was intended to and in mint physical condition as well.

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

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

This Sheaffer PFM I set is hard to find in this condition with original Chalk Marks and original Presentation Case. This set is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection. I would consider this Sheaffer PFM I Set to be in Near Mint to Mint Condition and certainly a collector grade set that should be cherished in a deserving collection.
