Vintage Pens: Sheaffer PFM V
Vintage Pens: 1732 Sheaffer PFM V
Few Sheaffer pens are as desired as much as the Sheaffer PFM series. Ours is a Sheaffer PFM V. This is the pinnacle of the PFM (Pen for Men) line, as it has a gold-plated cap and tail piece. Ours is in very good to excellent condition. You can see a little wear on the cap and barrel, but there are no egregious dents,cracks or deep scratches. The metal surfaces have light surface scratches from careful daily use. The snorkel filling system is in great working condition. We don't know when it was last restored, but the pen works perfectly. The inlaid 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line. It is very firm but very reasonable with which to write. There can be a little feedback at some angles, but nothing extra-fine lovers haven't come to expect. The wide body is so nice for gripping without cramping. 13.5cm capped.
