PFM - How to tell if you have a Sheaffer PFM Fountain Pen: Sheaffer PFM pens are ALWAYS Snorkel filling - a snorkel tube extends from the feed behind the nib. PFM's have Sheaffer inlaid nibs. If you think you have a PFM and it does not have a Snorkel tube in the nib OR if it it uses cartridges, then you most likely have a Sheaffer Imperial which has the overall look of a PFM, but is smaller in size. Imperials are touchdown or cartridge/converter filling.

  • PFM I: Plastic cap and barrel, chrome trim, Pd-Ag (Palladium)inlaid nib.
  • PFM II: Brushed steel cap, plastic barrel, Pd-Ag (Palladium) inlaid nib.
  • PFM III: Plastic cap and barrel, gold filled trim, 14 KT gold inlaid nib.
  • PFM IV: Polished Steel cap, gold filled trim, plastic barrel, gold filled trim, 14 KT gold inlaid nib.
  • PFM V: Gold filled cap, plastic barrel, 14 KT gold inlaid nib.
  • PFM VI: Gold filled cap and barrel, 14 KT gold inlaid nib.

Triumph Imperial Pens & Pencils

SH4183 $10

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.

 

 

 

SH4272 $100

I should clarify that this is most likely NOT a tool to fix No Nonsense pen, but a tool made to fit into a NoNonsense pen to be used in the factory. Just as pens are great tools for writing, a pen barrel and cap make a perfect vehicle for a tool, easy to keep in a worker’s pocket and lots of space in the barrel for the tool. This black No Nonsense has a steel stylus on the nib end and when you unscrew the barrel, a round diamond shaped steel file is inside. The barrel has some light surface wear. The cap has more surface wear and a deep, small indentation just to the right of the clip ball. Measures 5 3/8 inches long. My gut tells me this was most likely a tool for a machine in the factory, not a tool for working on a pen. Interesting piece from the former factory in Fort Madison, Iowa.

Intrigue Pens

Reminder Clip Ballpoint Pens

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.

Sheaffer Memorabilia

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.

MM-SHF-403 $25

Sheaffer HOW Award Pin, bright chrome finish with light blue and black enamel. I have tried to research what HOW stood for, as have some other Sheaffer collectors and I do not have a definitive answer. Some Sheaffer employees recollect that these were given to employees who submitted cost savings ideas that were put into use, but we have not documented that.

MM-SHF-404 $25

SH4300 $150

Sheaffer 30 Year Anniversary Necklace – Every 5 years, employees at the Sheaffer Pen Museum received a service pin or necklace in recognition of their years of service.  The 30 year pin was cast in 10KT gold and featured a small diamond at the top.  In the center is “30”, Sheaffer is in gold on the dark green circle. Includes chain and is in original box with the outer box as well. I tend to think that this pin was received, put in a drawer or jewelry box and never worn.  Excellent condition and a true Sheaffer collectible!   

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.

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.

MM-SHF-420 $30

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.

SH3122 $25

Sheaffer Porcelain Dessicator Plate - Pure white marked on back Coors USA 60454 Warning: These have nothing to do with pens or writing except for the fact I recovered them from one of the Sheaffer Labs many years ago during that factory auction to end all auctions! Makes a great hot plate but I love the idea of hanging this on your wall as shown for some cool modern industrial art. Measures 5 5/8 in diameter. Those of you who may have once used lab equipment like this item know the quality is high and they are not cheap when purchased new, I happened to come across some that were well over $100 each.

SH3124 $15

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.

SH3189 $12

SH4209 $20

Sheaffer Tool and Die Piece – Other than to tell you that is is an unusual, sort of artsy piece of steel and that it was used in the Sheaffer factory in Fort Madison, I can’t tell you what it was used for.  There are 19 screws across the top of one edge and 5 more screws on the ends.  Measures 8.25 x 1.25 x 1.25 inches overall size.

SH4211 $25

SH4213   $25

Sheaffer Factory Tool is hand engraved on the back side:  jig for making jaws for lock and chamfer machine.  Very heavy little square tool with a few moving gizmos on the top, we’re calling it a nice little executive desk top gizmo although we do know it was used as part of one of the monster pieces of machinery in the factory!
Measures 3.25 x 2.5 x 2 inches at highest point.

SH4224  $20

SH4228 $15

Sheaffer Tool hand marked on the flat side:  Nozzle L2-4ea  DWG EB8912.  Solid steel, one side is perfectly flat, the other side is cylindrical.  We can only guess that it had something to do with the “nosecone” or nozzle of perhaps a mechanical pencil or ballpoint pen.  Measures 5.5 inches long. 

SH4229  $25

Sheaffer Tool – Other than the fact that it was used in the Fort Madison Sheaffer Pen factory a long time ago and has this engraving:  EB2470 01-9-47  (possibly translated to January 1, 1947??), we have no idea what this tool was used for!  There is more writing and numbers on the opposite side, but it is so well worn, it is difficult at best to decipher what it says. Unscrew the large screw on top and this tool separates into two pieces.  Measures 6.75 inches long. 

SH4230  $25

Sheaffer Tool Assmblage!
