As my luck was running good the other evening, I will also not be in the running, but as a fun way to watch this thread, I'll post some observations:

Those are three freakin awesome pens in those auctions!!!

I was doing a wide type search and was WOWed by several vintage Parkers that are closing this weekend. Some very unusual (not so rare but unusual) pens and sets.

Some Parkernista will have lightened wallets come Monday morning.

Plus I think it's just more fun individually, you have 3 chances to zero in on the total.

I think it'd be fun to see 5 or 6 people all within 5 dollars or so going into the last item. :thumbup:

All three of those items are likely going to have good swings upwards in their prices. I don't think that is an unintentional factor in those three pens being there. ;)
