Got way, way, way too many toys and am trying to cut down the herd a bit, since i've completely filled up "the man room" and am half-way into filling up one of our extra bedrooms
So with a heavy heart - I part with 2 dearly beloved and treasured items, I never really used
#1 - Gold Dupont Lighter
$475 OBO (if you're a contributor you can knock $25 off the price) - This is a 100% authentic Dupont, purchased from my local authorized dealer a number of years ago and comes complete with all of its original paperwork. It needs a light polish, but otherwise is in superlative shape. It was used about 15 times, and was never carried in a pocket, jostled around with any other items, etc. Essentially the first week I went around the house driving my wife nuts with it's infamous "PIIIING" and it lived the rest of its life in its box. When used the select few times it was, it was out of the box only long enough to light a cigar, then was promptly returned to it's box. I know - I know.... pointless for me to own it, and that's why it's for sale This is an uncommon model, from the "2 line" range, and had an MSRP of $1,100 when I bought it - and I paid a shocking $900 for it.

SOLD! $150 ($10 off for contributors) Pelikan M400 medium nib - Similar story as the Dupont. Since i've owned this Pelikan, i've only filled it once (Noodler's) signed a few documents, and stored it in it's case in a desk drawer. It's never been carried so it's in superb condition - I can't detect any light scratches or issues of ANY kind - it's basically new. Why did I never use it? Well, I have multiple Namiki Vanishing points as well as a Lamy 2000 as my daily work horses and intended on the Pelikan being my "special occasions" pen. Unfortunately, I never really had any special occasions - and the darn thing never got used Great pen, writes smooth as butta, looks stunning and comes in mint condition with all original paperwork, box, etc. MSRP $295.
Didn't wipe the nib to show you exactly how it was when I pulled it out of the drawer (has a little bit of dried black ink which would easily wipe off)
Both items include first class shipping. Insurance is extra and is highly recommended. I am not responsible for the item during shipment if insurance is not purchased.
