I have noted an increasing? trend for UK based pen sellers to list items for sale in US$ - such as this example:
Being sold by someone who sells lots of pens this way and is living in Bedford, England; both the item and the postage being quoted in dollars.
(Ignoring the over-inflated prices which occur in any currency) Is there really an obvious benefit in this $ approach that I am overlooking??
The seller of this highlighted pen has numerous items that are certainly worth a look..... as this "excellent, restored, no faults noted" Parker Duofold appears to be equipped with what looks like a Summit s.75 clip, there is a green CS15 with a CS58 clip ingeniously fitted, a "typhoo" with a "excellent clip" that looks to be truncated, and an interesting Esterbrook Icicle! ....
However there are also some very good UK based pens to be found sold in $, I recall seeing (an oxford based?) seller who regularly lists very nice Wahl pens this way (and at finishing times clearly aimed at the US buyer).
enlighten me please!
