I was browsing the internet last night searching for some old style Pelikans. This particular one caught my eye that I'd like to have some opinions from you.
This pen looks authentic to me and it's in excellent condition according to the pictures attached to the listing.
I have couple of late 80's Pelikan M600 acquired from reputable sellers. Comparing to my very limited experience with ebay, there are a couple of things that make me suspicious of this pen.
It's listed as a "private listing". I haven't had any experience with such private sells. The seller's rating is 99.2% which is not bad. I tried to get an idea how many pens have been sold through this seller but couldn't get any information. All items sold by this seller were "private listings" - it seems very strange to me.
The seller is registered as a business seller. The information of the business is incomplete, for instance, the business address has street number but no street name.
I don't know if I should walk away from this "private listing" but the pictures of the pen looks very attractive unless they got stolen from somewhere.
