I agree on everything, except for getting a Prelude FP for less than $20.

It's true. You can get it now for $27+FS on EBay and last week you could get it for $19.xx + shipping from Judd because it was on sale. I was watching that for a while and all of them are NOS.


That's quite a bargain! Did you get one?

I wonder if there was a Sheaffer gold nib from any other (vintage) model that could fit the Prelude?

Nope. I don't really want to start a collection of Prelude and as a user grade pen, I think you can almost always get used ones off auction for similar prices...........Ok, the true reason was I spent my money on a Parker Vacu. Haha

You all might find it interesting that the Prelude Signature was offered with a 14 karat gold nib - I'll post something this weekend.

Hi PenHero! Looking forward to your post!

 

They have a few adverts running in the classifieds. Nice pens with the 14k nib. Really wanted 1 or 2 but unfortunately they charge $46 p&p for outside the US.  That even more expensive than Ebay 's rip off global shipping...so sadly I wont be buying any.  I really don't understand the postage costs as I buy regularly from the US and have never paid that much...nowhere near!

Yeah, obviously the $19.72 one was the last one. I think $58.5 for 14k signature prelude is now the best deal.

Hi Alvaro. What a nice coincidence!

I bought it from a Mercado Livre seller. R$ 200,00: 10x interest-free.

A great pen!

Thank you.

 

I'll look for that pen in ML.
 
In Goiânia there is a good (and only) pens store called "Caneta Dourada". I buy my inks and cartridges there...

I know the store. The problem is their prices - too expensive. The same seller of the Sheaffer sells inks and cartridges for much lower prices, shipping included.

Let me know if you found it on ML.

Cheers!
