Fashion Pens & Pencils
Sheaffer Fashion

The photo above is a Sheaffer Fashion Ballpoint sample that came from the Sheaffer Paint Room at their factory in Fort Madison, Iowa. We purchased this pen and the desk it came in, in February 2007 at auction. Painted pen finishes were all produced in this section of the factory. The item is not real old, it is dated 1990, but we did find it fascinating that it was marked by hand.

In case you can't read the tag clearly in the photograph it says: "2330 FBP 645 Preferred finish, texture, and color of FPB 645 Dusty Rose. 9/18/90 D. Hauck"

FBP is an abbreviation for Fashion Ball Point and 645 was the stock number of this item.

No Nonsense & Related Pens

Sheaffer made No Nonsense Pens for many years with the threaded cap which many people find preferable to their newer style of Viewpoint with a friction fit cap. Designs ranged from plain black to some pretty wild designs. The nice thing about No Nonsense pens is that they truly are no nonsense pens and write first time, every time, very reliable.

Also in the No Nonsense section you will find related pens such as Viewpoints and the Guys and Dolls series when they are available.



Sheaffer No Nonsense Nib Units

The nibs listed below are nib units only for the original style No Nonsense fountain pens which have threaded sections and caps. Newer style No Nonsense have push on caps and a rubber gripping section. Nibs for the screw in style do not interchange with the rubber gripping section style. Nib are polished steel. All are new old stock.

We think one of Sheaffer's most practical inventions ever was the "Reminder Clip" ballpoint pen. Depress the clip and the point extends. But, you must click it again to make the point retract and open the clip back up in order to clip it in your pocket. No chance of an ink stain ever with this handy little invention. The clip doesn't open, unless the refill is retracted. Sadly, Reminder Clip ballpens are no longer made. We try to round these up whenever we can because they are still very popular today.

The Delta-Pack - Sheaffer - Webster's Set. I'm sure this was a popular back to school item not so long ago in the early 1990s before things such as spell-check and google came into popularity. This set includes a black Sheaffer Delta Grip ballpoint pen and a Webster's II Pocket Dictionary. The back side of the package touts the revolutionary Delta Grip pen for ease in writing with an alternating ribbed - smooth section. I do note that there is an unusual imprint on the bottom edge of package back side: Sheaffer Eaton Lincoln. RI 02865/Ft. Madison, IA 52627. I don't recall Sheaffer Eaton ever being in Lincoln RI, so that puzzles me a little bit. At any rate the dictionary and pen are in mint condition still sealed inside the package. I am 99% sure the refill will not write, though I might be surprised, but I'm not opening the package to find out. We will include a fresh Sheaffer refill just in case you decide to break open the package.

Sheaffer Delta Grip fountain pen, ca. late 1980s. Most Delta Grips were ballpoints and beyond that most Delta Grips went to the ad specialty market for advertising purposes. Much nicer than your average cheap plastic advertising pens. These are all metal pens with satin gold finish with the typical molded plastic black clip and top piece. Fit with gold plated steel nibs marked Sheaffer Made in USA and M for Medium point. Designed for cartridges, but we find they accept the Sheaffer squeeze converters perfectly, so we're including one with each pen (retail value $15). The piston style converters do not however fit into these pens. Sheaffer Skrip cartridges also work fine. Pen measures 5 3/16 inches long and is cylindrical in shape with flat ends. These pens have never been used, they are new old stock that was recently acquired. You will note that there is a tiny hole near the top of the clip. No, the white dot is not missing, these pens never wore Sheaffer's white dot. They were designed for an advertising emblem to be attached at the top of the clip. Perfect pen with a small hole at the top of the clip. Available with a smooth medium point.

Unique Sheaffer Desk Sets!

Some of you may recall my mentions of the Sheaffer Industrial Auction I attended in 2007, the one where Frank held his breath that I wouldn't buy everything in sight! I didn't buy everything in sight, but I did buy oodles of treasures and some of the treasures came with baggage. If there was one specific thing in a big steel storage cabinet, it meant I had to buy the entire storage cabinet and everything inside of it and get it out of the factory, too, within 72 hours after the auction ended. We ended up hiring a local moving company to do the hauling. The pieces of steel that the desk sets below were made of came out of various cabinets on the factory floor. We packed them up in buckets that could still be lifted. About a year later, I spent the better part of a week sitting on the floor and sorting through all this metal. Frank shook his head once again having no doubt that I had lost my mind to the world of pen stuff! Any piece of machine steel that had a readable engraving or sometimes was just interesting went into the "keep" pile. If it was just plain steel, no markings and nothing exciting about it, it took a trip to our local scrap metal dealer. After another 6 months or so, the building we were renting to store all these treasures was sold, so I did some more sorting and brought home pieces that I knew I'd figure out what to do with one day. My light bulb turned on one day and blinked desk sets! So without further ado and story telling, here they are ...

The desk sets below were made from pieces of machine steel that were once used to manufacture pens and pen parts at the Sheaffer factory here in Fort Madison, Iowa. Most of them have an engraving of some sorts relating to their use at the factory - some of which I can translate thanks to the help of a former Sheaffer employee, some we just didn't have a clue what the letters and numbers meant.

We've added a new old stock polished brass pen holder to each piece of steel and black felt to the base to keep it from scratching your desk. These are very heavy desk sets, even the smaller sized ones - trust me, even the most determined kitty is not going to knock this over or even slide it a smidgen! Some take two hands to lift, at least two of my hands!

The steel base was carefully drilled to accommodate the pen holder and has been nicely polished to a silvery sheen and buffed with carnuba wax to prevent any rust.

Sheaffer'S Review Company Magazines

Sheaffer started publishing Reviews at the beginning of World War II. So many of their male employees went off to war, that the Reviews began as a way of keeping everyone in touch with fellow employees and family members during the war. The Sheaffer Review continued as an in house employee newsletter through the 1960s, sometime in the 1970s the title changed to Sheaffer Eaton Times for a brief period, then was re-named Face to Face. Sheaffer Ink replaced Face to Face sometime in the 1990s.

One thing that we are always reminded of when we page through these old company magazines is how employee and family oriented Sheaffer Pen was. Picnics, sports teams and leagues, birthday celebrations - Sheaffer was indeed a huge family oriented organization. And we mustn't forget any special occasion was a reason for lots of good homemade food, indeed that tradition seems to continue in Fort Madison where food always pulls people together!

All issues listed below are in very good condition unless otherwise noted.

Sheaffer Pen Co Employee Service Pins

Sheaffer always treated their employees well and one of the things they did was give each employee a Service Pin or medallion on five year anniversaries. Men received a lapel pin, women received a medallion for a necklace. Needless to say, the five and ten year pins are more common than the 20, 25 and higher year pins. I've only seen a couple of 45-Year pins and have been told there were two 50-Year pins awarded, but no firm proof of that. If you find a 50-Year pin, I'd love to see it!

You might also find in our listings below some special Sheaffer award pins that were given to employees.

Sheaffer Engraving Dies

These steel engraving dies were used to print the Sheaffer name on cap bands in the 1970s - 1980s. The actual dies vary a little in size, but are all about 1 x 1.25 inches. All came from the Sheaffer factory in Fort Madison, Iowa and are just one of the odd and unusual items we purchased at the Sheaffer equipment auction in February 2007. A nice little historical trinket from the days when Sheaffers were made in Fort Madison.

Sheaffer Paintings Exhibit
Commemorative Poster

Sheaffer Art Exhibit Poster

During the month of November 2005, 13 original works of art by distinguished artists Andrew Loomis, Coles Phillips, Frederic Mizen, John Newton Howitt and Lester Bentley were exhibited at the Fort Madison Art Center. These paintings were commissioned by Sheaffer Pen from the 1920s - 1940s and had never before left the halls of Sheaffer headquarters in Fort Madison, Iowa.

50 posters were made for the exhibit and all proceeds from the posters go to the Fort Madison Art Center who graciously sponsored the Sheaffer Paintings exhibit.

The poster measures 11 x 17 and is printed in full color on heavy gloss stock. The photo featured is by Andrew Loomis.

Sheaffer Print - Amazing print of the Sheaffer Pen Company Headquarters in Fort Madison, Iowa. Drawn and painted by Jim Knapp, a local artist who is known for his amazingly detailed architectural illustrations. Jim works from photographs, some old, some new. Jim illustrated the Sheaffer factory with a Burlington Route streamline train in the foreground in 2009 from an old photograph. The work is starts as a pencil sketch, then a Rapidograph pen with India Ink is used to go over the lines and fill in the details. Once that line work is completed, the drawing is enhanced with water colors. The Sheaffer prints measure 11 x 17 inches and is shipped with a heavy cardboard backer to prevent any damage. We are certain that Sheaffer collectors and those appreciative of detailed and well executed illustration will be pleased to add one of these prints to their collection.

Sheaffer Adjustment Tool - The story I was told was that this tool was made in the Sheaffer factory to adjust a machine someone operated. Very heavy steel, no moving parts. The employees at Sheaffer were always making tools to make their jobs easier. Measures 4 inches long and the circular piece is 1.25 inches diameter to give a little perspective on size. I just like the design right down to the round black knob on the handle.

It is engraved: Prelude Bpt & Pcl Barrel The chain on it would have attached to the machine being used. L-shaped. Measures 3.5 inches long. Chain is 30 inches long.

Sheaffer Refills

Refilling your
Vintage Mechanical Pencils

Most mechanical pencils made before the late 1960s and some even after that are refilled by feeding lead in from the Point End. Those that feed from the barrel (below the eraser) are a fairly modern invention! Don't be fooled by leads in the barrel, in older pencils, that was simply a space to store a few extra leads, but that's it - just storage. As always with vintage writing instruments, exceptions will crop up!

The instruction below are from a Sheaffer package insert, but apply to most older mechanical pencils.
