sorry to be negative as to the real nub of your question - from your comments this appears to be a rare pen - so few of us will have bought an example and difficult to assess a value - generally, most things are only worth what they make on the day - so all a bit subjective - presumably you paid what you considered this pen to be worth to you - and therein lies the problem.
However, would suggest that if you were selling - and since you don't want to make a loss - then it would make sense to offer the pen at your cost price - this would apply if you were to sell outside on-line auctions.
However, high starting prices on an on-line auction deter buyers so the pen may not sell - lower initial prices are appealing and attract buyers, but the risk could be that your hoped for price isn't realized when the hammer falls, and you make a loss - all rather a gamble really.
Most people would suggest that the insured value needs to be substantially higher to cover the potentially higher replacement cost - it's sod's law that just when you want to buy something it's either rare as hen's teeth, or just plain expensive.
Great pen by the way - think I'd keep it

I'm not an expert, but I have spent a lot of time on ebay looking for pocket sized Watermans like the 92v. I don't think I've seen one with that pattern. Congratulations on a nice find.
Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: vintage, waterman, 92v, lizard
