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.
  • PFM VII: 14 KT gold cap, plastic barrel, 14 KT gold inlaid nib.
  • PFM VIII: 14 KT gold cap, barrel and inlaid nib.

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 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.

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.

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.
