Dear members,

 

I inherited a pen from my grandparents and I would like to know if it is valuable or not. However, I didn't find this type on the internet so I don't have any information abouit it. Could someone please provide me an evaluation about it's value? I attached some pictures about the pen.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

I see that a lot of people have viewed your message, but none has given you the courtesy of a reply. That's
because they have noticed that yours is a ballpoint pen, about which most most FPN members know or care little.
ANY pen is worth only what the market will pay for it. To get some history on any pen, look at the prices for
sold items on eBay, and, hopefully, you will find your pen. Another factor affecting its price is condition -
describe, in words, any issues. Does it come with its original box or papers? Another plus. Marlen has a good
reputation, so that should not be a factor in your receiving a fair price for your pen, if it is your intent to
sell it. I hope that I have been of some help.

I couldn't have explained it better. I agree that Marlen has a great reputation. I would try to find the prices of some current Marlen ballpoints for reference, though they might not be the exact same pen. Ebay is your best bet for value. 


Can I put something down here?                                                                                            A small blog that I run in my free time​spectorpen.com
