Triumph & Tuckaway - Pens & Pencils

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.

1959 Lady Sheaffer catalog from our private collection.

Lady Sheaffers were given a Roman Numeral designation as well a name for each pattern. Click here to view catalog.

Fashion Pens & Pencils - Sheaffer Fashion

SH4661 $50

Sheaffer “Perfect Sample” Fashion Ballpoint Cap and Barrel from the Sheaffer factory “Paint Room”. 1990. This is just the cap and barrel, no guts, no clip, no refill.  Kept in Quality Control as a “Perfect Sample” to compare this Dusty Rose finish. Attached is a marking tag that is handwritten and reads on side 1: “Paint Room” and on the other side: “2330 FBP 645 Preferred finish, texture and color of FBP 65 Dusty Rose. 9/19/90  D. Hauck.” Measures 4 7/8 inches long. (1 avail)

OF NOTE: David Hauck was a design engineer at Sheaffer and indeed was involved in the design of the PFM amongst other projects. Mr. Hauck passed away in 1995. We never met Mr. Hauck, but knew his wife, Shirley who lived nearby. Shirley kept this amazing scrapbook filled with remembrances of her husband’s work at Sheaffer, especially lots of info on PFM development. We sat in her living room many an evening with her paging through the scrapbook and reminiscing. Shirley passed away in 2018. Fond memories. 


Triumph Imperial Pens & Pencils

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.

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 Sentinel Mechanical Pencil - USA. Brushed stainless steel with gold electroplated clip and trim, white dot at top of clip. Click to extend 0.7mm diameter lead, manual repel. Measures 5 5/16 inches long. Mint condition.

SH4652 $150

Sheaffer’S snap close pen case, ca. 1930s, two copies of correspondence dated 1937 and 13 wood lead tubes marked October 1937 with lead grades.  There is no lead in the wood tubes.  One full sized sheet is from Ned Fish who was a Sheaffer employee to Mr. Lindemon dated October 18, 1937 and is regards to M.A. Ferst in Atlanta Ga.  I think this letter and the other half sheet is from W.H. Lindemon to Mr. Mekemson dated Oct 12, 1937 with additional handwritten dates of 10-14-37 and Oct 8 37.  Basically what is here are two letters (not original letters, but file copies of original letters between Sheaffer and Ferst which was a pencil lead maker in Atlanta.  The correspondence revolves around Ferst providing samples of the pencil leads and correspondence that the lead grades in the samples were not the same as previous lead grades received.  The wood lead tubes are in an old pen box, black leatherette with dark purple satin lining on inside of snap close lid printed:  SheafferS Lifetime Fountain Pen.  No pens, just the wood lead tubes are stored in this box.  Hinge on the box is very worn as are the edges of box.  It seems logical that this box had noting to do with pencil leads, but was used to hold the Ferst sample tubes.   Should you decide this would be a nice period pen box for your Sheaffer 1930s Lifetime Pens and Pencils.  This is not a recent acquisition, but a part of a collection of Sheaffer related things acquired when we lived in Fort Madison.

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-406 $10

Sheaffer - Crownmark Lapel Pin, bright gold plated (or brass?) finished pin measures 1 x .25 inches.

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.
