JamesStreats posted a topic in IntroductionsHello to one and all, I have found your lovely forum here after coming into possession of what appears to be a rather rare item today. I own and operate a forum myself for my US sports team and so place a lot of value in the opinions and efficacy of forums as a place to speak with the REAL people who know what is what on a particular subject. This one is very much new to me, hence why I was delighted to find the forum here as hopefully a way to get some advice. So.....to the meat and potatoes. Today I stumbled across a presentation box for the Montegrappa, Ali vs Frazier, Thrilla in Manilla Limited Edition Fountain pen box set, limited to 350 made. Of course, I have found various listings and information about the complete set, with pen/s, certificates of authenticity and all the things that came with this originally but I only have the presentation box right here. So, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on and assist me with how I could potentially find someone who would want this? I am aware that there is a large amount of stock placed (in collectors circles/markets) on the boxes for high value pens, and so if someone just has the pen for some reason then they would be the person I would need to be in touch with. I am in the UK (on the south coast in Brighton) but if perhaps someone around the world wanted this very rare presentation box to complete their pen set, then would be more than happy to properly, safely and securely send it anywhere in the world. I have spoken to a couple of pen collector experts here in the UK and they have given me an indication of value and desirability but as I said, I would very much like to hear some of your takes in the situation I find myself in with this......hoping not to end up losing out to some thrifty dealer who convinces me to sell it to them for much less than it is worth to the right buyer. Many thanks in advance, really glad I have found your site here and hope to be chatting with some of you soon. J
