OK. For my swag, I will make a total guess of 249.99. The problem will be picking from the prize cart!!! A book of secrets, or FPN logo. Geez!

I wanted to make the total different, but I was afraid that might break the rules.

If we were hypothetically speaking let's say, and IF only bidding on Ebay once and early had disadvantages, those same disadvantages might also be present here.


This is a good point... to some extant someone who is so motivated could actually influence the outcome of the auctions in play. It ain't a horse race.


"Influence the outcome of the auctions"?

I guess I'm not equating waiting for more information to make a more accurate *Guess* with "influencing the outcome of the auction"...

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!!!

Increase your IQ, use Linux AND a Fountain pen!!Neko_animated.gif

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.
