Removing Sharpie from Fur Coat Silk Lining?

Today I found a black Sharpie stain on the 25% pink silk lining of a real, vintage, white-colored blue-fox fur coat I own. I bought it recently and don't remember seeing it when I bought it, as I inspected it pretty well, but I haven't worn it yet and it is possible it's been there a while (I bought it vintage). It looks pretty fresh, and if it happened in my possession it would have been made in the past week. The coat is unable to be washed unless taken to a professional (not dry cleaning, a fur coat specialist) and I can't separate the silk from the fur, but there is a pocket that allows me to lift that portion a little bit away from the rest of the fur. Is there any way I can get the stain out without harming the fur?

If you value your fur coat, I suggest you take it to a fur coat professional for an evaluation of removal of the stain and the cost. There are many stain removal ideas on the internet, however, the only resource I could find from a search today is from a professional fur coat cleaner to send the coat to their company.

Rubbing alcohol will remove Sharpie ink but it may leave a mark. If you try it, lift the silk away from the for and rub the alcohol using a Q-tip dipped in alcohol to minimize any "ring".
