I have just been told by my cousin that I am going to be receiving a fountain pen from inheritance. The pen is a Swan 4660.
My question is, what is a respectable price for a Swan 4660 that is near mint/mint possibly unused? I have NO intention of selling, and am not interested in the ridiculous amounts things go for on ebay - I'm simply wondering what a pen such as this is worth approximately given no unrealistic bidding etc?
To me it is priceless and may or may not be used by me ever, I'm scared to use something possibly new old stock.
While we're at it, what would a used but excellent condition one be worth being reasonable with pricing?
Sorry that this is a weird question, I'd just rather know if I should protect this pen not only for personal reasons, but also monetary reasons.
Thank you all! If I get the pen soon, I will upload photos!
