Fair Price For Anniversary 75Th Pelikan

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I'm about to put on sale Pelikan's 75th Anniversary LE in a mint condition (never used, all boxes etc) with a good discount and kind of can't decide on price.

 

It was sold at Bonham's for $6875 (http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/21816/lot/1304/) in December'14, whereas at Penporium it is listed for $18500 (http://www.penporium.com/product-p/574.htm). So, in my opinion $7K is pretty low, but at the same time $18,5K is quite a number. If I am not mistaken, the MSRP was around 7500 Euro initially, but after submitting the pen to the market, Pelikan managers stated that the initial MSRP suggestion was wrong (too low).

 

I guess that a fair market price would be somewhere between $12k–$17 (without discount). What do you think is the most appropriate figure?

 

Thanks!

That's a pretty pen. I've only seen pictures of course but what a treat. I think it is tough to price something like this when it is not seen regularly offered for sale. Your probably best off to pick a price and entertain reasonable offers. That Bonhams auction was recent so might be a good benchmark of what the market will bare but I'm not sure what audience that auction targeted. You can always accept less. If you price it $12-15K, you'd probably be doing well. Again, such a hard thing to judge when there is such a limited audience. Good luck with it.
