> Sheaffer PFM III in Burgundy

A Sheaffer PFM (PFM meaning Pen for Men) is a little larger than the average pen but still not too large for a ladies hand and I know a few ladies that use one as an everyday pen; it uses the unusual snorkel filling system which is generally found to be quite a talking point; these pens were made in 1959 in five colours viz. black, burgundy, blue, green, and grey and in five models viz. PFM I, PFM II, PFM III, PFM IV, and PFM V; this pen is the burgundy one with the gold electro-plated trim.

This is another burgundy PFM III pen in perfect mechanical condition albeit a little worn; it has been used as is quite evident but it is not damaged and the nib shows little sign of wear; this cap is good and the clip is secure but does have a little lateral movement. The nib is a lovely fine grade 14k gold and writes nicely.
