Restoration/ Service

Pen has been fully disassembled, ultrasonically cleaned to remove traces of old ink. Special encased ink sac has been replaced, also a new set of lubricated sealing washers . All traces of ink removed from collector, feeder and snorkel tubes, nib reset and polished. Pen barrel and cap delicately hand polished. Reassembled, write tested and finally flushed with clean water. 

General Condition

Pen barrel and cap are free from noticeable scratches, with no dents, cracks or hairlines. There are no personalisation. Gold plating to pocket clip and centre band is very good. Vacuum filling rod slides with ease and draws good quantity of ink. Cap retention spring secures cap firmly in place. Pen is in excellent working order, we would classify pen as being in overall excellent condition. Pen is supplied in bespoke Hepworth Dixon card box.

Hepworth Comment

The PFM is a legendary writing instrument, beautifully engineered by Sheaffer. The pen was produced in five colours: black, blue, burgundy, green, and grey. The rarest colours are grey, blue and green.
