Too late, I realized I should have enquired here, first, before posting an ad to sell my like-new Pelikan M150.

I would appreciate your help in determining whether to leave my ad as it stands or delete it (if possible) and re-list it at an even lower price?

Recently I have returned to FPN after a few years of busyness and am not current with all protocols here. Hopefully I am not overstepping any rules by posing this question.

I look forward to your replies.

For German prices that is E$10-15 too much. I bought one in a German Antique store for E35 I believe  last fall.

Prices go from E22, 35, 53-60.Those were 4 were sold.

 

There were many not Sold,these seven, E30-35,40,-60-70-80 and some one wished real hard at 100 and was politely ignored.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

The U.S. prices on these range from $50-100 at auction. The higher end of that range is usually for new, boxed items. Based on your description, I'd say you're in the ballpark. These are probably best priced at $65 if you want it to move.

Thank you for your help. I will change the price to $65 as you suggest. It's a nice little pen but I don't use it and hope it will find a home with someone who will really appreciate and enjoy it.

When I bought mine, I got it on ebay from a UK seller and it was 35 GBP before shipping - that was last spring. I think after the currency conversion after shipping was $50-55. I think your shipping price may be a bit steep @ $8-14 for US shipping. Not sure I paid that much from the UK.
