You need to go into the full editor to change the title.
All I see from that seller are ballet and teddy bear items.
Thanks for the trick.
Please go to the sold items (feedback page) and do a search for "Lamy". You may have to hit "200" items (at the bottom) per page before that.

A seller that I use from the UK lists Al-Stars starting at 16.95 GBP, so that is a really low price.
Perhaps he/she got a good deal on them.
UK sellers seem to be able to sell the Safari & Al-star pens for a lot less than other regions.
EDIT: still learning to spell

Who would fake an Al-Star? If you're gonna fake something, fake a MB149.
It may quite well depend on how many one is selling and with how much profit one is happy with. Anyways, it also shows how much actually is invested in making a pen. Accept it or not, big brands do rip us just for the brand name. Well, I shall still buy them anyway....

not profitable to fake the Lamy pen, especially so when Lamys are available at
generally affordable prices all over the market, and when people sell second hand
pens off at cheap(er) (sometimes) prices! I sold my unused, mint Charcoal for 20
USD, for one...

I can't see a reason why the pens shouldn't be genuine.
