I used this pen for about 6 months and them switched to an Omas. So it's in pretty good nick. I will take offers for the next 3 days. At that time, the best offer over US$150 gets it.

Shipping: If you are in Australia, then any method applies, and you can even have it COD. Otherwise, international airmail rates/

Are you taking offers by PM, email, and in the forum? Is there any way to know what the high offer is? And when is the time up? --j

I got a personal message from the original poster yesterday saying it was sold. I'm surprised he didn't post here as well.

I'm very uncomfortable about the "sealed bid" nature of this sale. I thought the rules of Marketplace were that you had to announce a price and sell it to the first one who offered to pay that price. This sale didn't go that way.

I found this disturbing as well. I asked earlier in the thread for clarification as to what entailed "making an offer" which went unanswered. I then made an offer in the forum and waited until a day or so after the three days had passed before sending a PM asking if I had the high offer. That message also went unanswered. I sent another PM yesterday asking again and got a terse reply stating simply that it had been sold. I thought this could have been conducted better.

A friend who runs a website in the UK says it would be illegal there to run such an 'auction', unless you were properly licensed to do so.

I didn't like the style of it either.
