  1. Yet again, I am trying to purchase a Montblanc Oscar Wilde ballpoint pen. This time, I trying to get this pen via a pen swap from a seller from whom I have purchased several pens in the past. However, since I have only done one pen swap in the past, I figured that I would ask the advice of those here who have done pen swaps since this swap seems a little one-sided (not in my favor) to me. I have like-new but without boxes Cross Townsend Lapis Lazuli ballpoint pen, pencil and rollerball pen and Cross Townsend Jade ballpoint pen and rollerball pen. I have kept each set in its own leather pen case, only taking them out to look at them on occasion; once in a while I may write a little bit during one of these little "visits" as well. Since these Cross Townsends are so recognizable, I have been reluctant to use them in public. However, having them sit around my house being admired on occasion rather than used is a waste of these lovely writing instruments. So, I thought that it might be nice to trade them for a couple pens which I might use, one of which is the Oscar Wilde ballpoint; other than the Montblanc star atop the pen, the ballpoint is not recognizable to those who are not familiar with the Oscar Wilde Montblanc series. The seller said that he would take the five Cross Townsend pens/pencil (Lapis Lazuli ballpoint, pencil and rollerball pen and Jade ballpoint and rollerball pen) in exchange for the Montblanc Oscar Wilde ballpoint pen. Since he is currently selling a Cross Townsend Lapis Lazuli ballpoint pen for $499, the my-five-pens for his-one-pen swap seems one-sided in his favor. I understand that he is a seller and must make a living but even I know that the Lapis Lazuli pencil is rare as is the like-new living-in-leather-pen-cases condition of my five pens. What are your thoughts on this pen swap? Any advice that you can provide would be welcome and appreciated. Thanks! : )
