Item #1, $92.00

(For funzies guess only.)

Bruce in Ocala, FL

Wow. $44.50, someone stole that pen, I KNEW *I* should have bid on it. That's a last model Mark III with a gold filled cap that sold for the low end of what the usual 51 with a Lustraloy cap would go for. :blink: In the past 5 weeks, 4 similar pens went from $90-100. The cheapest nice Mark III I saw was around $82 shipped. Again, someone stole this one.

It just goes to show you, like American football, "On any given day (on Ebay) anyone can win"

Bruce in Ocala, FL-who can still pull out of this spin, trust me

:yikes: I didn't bid because I figured it was going to go 3 digits... Someone is Sumgai today! (blue is my favorite color too!)

Not to mention being a spanking good illustration of why I didn't want to one guess only it...

On any given day, anything can sell for any amount on The Bay... :rolleyes:

Ok lemme noodle this out. :P

*I think the Sheaffer Statesman from Jim and Sharon will close for real at 52.00.* But, I'm 47.50 Too High on my first guess. So, (glancing at toes) and carry the 8, :wacko: ok, my official second guess for; Item #2, 4.50.

Bruce in Ocala, FL

[EDIT; Ok, that gets me $13 away from the current two pen total...]

Ok, there is one certainty.

If you add Item 1, 44.50, Item #2, 39 and the current bid of $26 (which is "guaranteed") you get $109.50. That means that our 3 lowest guessers out of 17 are mathematically out of the running. :(

I would lay my bets on AmateurAficionado at 131.31, Pakmanpony at 137.50 or Terminal at $145 but that's just me.

THAT'S what happens when you get distracted while Fleabay stuff is happnin' :rolleyes: If I had gotten my last guess in, I would have been over the $124 total Correct Answer. (44.50+39+40.50) All 3 pens closed for less than I thought, 2 of the 3 for dramatically less than recent similar pens.

It looks like our winner is RavenLunatic at $103.00 unless I missed something.

Thank you GClef for a great time!

Thanks Ocala, and Gclef, I guess the time wasted watching the price is right in my youth finally paid off. PM was sent. It was a tough choice. I am a total chocoholic, but remembering my Scriptures, "the pleasures of the flesh last but a season..." the pen would be a reminder of the contest for a lot longer. So I chose the lovely Sheaffer Cadet. Looking forward the the next game.

I missed a great game. Is there to be another? I'm sorry I missed out on the chance to win the lime. :notworthy1:
