You, too, can own your very own Pelikan 200, with italic nib.

Buy it through Amazon UK, and it can be yours for only a shade more than GBP2,637 (+P&P).

Hurry: there are only three left!

Great deal if it came with free shipping.

Okay, so I get all excited and then the not so fine print says they don;t deliver to the US.  What am I going to do with my extra twenty three hundred quid....buy a bar of soap?  Sheeesh, another great deal I missed out on!

Now that is one pricey pen.  Guess they only need 1 sale to cash in but can someone be nuts enough to make a purchase?

I may be the one person you know of who wants one of the new M200 models, even though I think they are over priced.  Unfortunately I just unloaded all of my expendable budget on a bathroom remodel so cannot take advantage of this great deal.

I'd go for it.....ONLY if they offered "volume discounts"....!!!

Getting 3 all at once.....yeah....that'd speed up divorce proceedings.....measurably!!:)

 

Always try to get the dibs....on fountain pens with EF nibs!!

Never mind the M200. You should see the other "bargains" from the same seller, like the "rust proof" toilet brush for £164.66 (3 of those in stock), vacuum cleaner bags for £82.30 (3 of those too) or the geography revision book for £197.38 (you guessed it, 3 of those as well).

I looked at the link, just for curiosity's sake.  Wonder what the seller would say about my scoring a Café Crème on eBay a couple of weeks ago.  I did the currency exchange online then did the math with the handy little calculator app on my laptop.  And I could buy nearly *32* Café Crèmes, given the same price as mine.  Which came with free shipping....  

And while the nib on mine is steel, not gold plated, it's a bazillion times more interesting (I'm guessing an italic B or maybe even a BB from the width of the line it puts down).

I wonder if the seller's real name is Barnum....  

Ruth Morrisson aka inkstainedruth

 

ETA: Or if he's related to that guy that was trying to (repeatedly) hawk the "rare" Bock pen on eBay a few years ago....

Oh damn, what a shame he doesn't ship to Australia. Never mind, it's lucky I already have one, although I'm pleasantly surprised at how well it's appreciated over the years.

Checking Amazon UK every so often can pay off. Every so often they have some really good deals. I picked up a brand new M800 Anthracite Stressman for $350 a little while back.

You see these kinds of prices all over Amazon on all their sites.

I wonder what is behind this ?

I suspect it is some kind of computer algorithm run amok ?

There is a long tradition of booksellers asking ridiculous prices for books they claim are rare or OP and I suspect some people actually pay these ridiculous prices.
