thanks for your answer. It was a long time that I did not read something so interesting. Although I always read your forum I never replied, but your answer made me to do it. Personally I am a young collector (young only as collector) and I do not know what advice to give. But what I can see is that online sales sites often or very often, have much higher prices than those that you can check on ebay from the same sellers and often for the same pens. Probably, reversing this feature and accepting (the sellers) lower prices the market would be more alive and collectors happier.
