    Default WTB: Sheaffer's Flat Top Senior size

    As the title says, looking for a Sheaffer's flat-top pen, in black, lever-filler, senior size with a Lifetime nib, like this one:



    Saw one recently that I liked but wasn't keen on getting involved in competitive shopping. Not desperate to buy, looking for a fair price.



    EDIT: condition must be 'good' or better.

    This just got listed. I've bought from them in the past. They don't ship to NZ. so you'll need to factor in forwarding if you are interested:

    The USPS doesnít list any rates to NZ much cheaper than that. It doesnít seem right to me, but then itís been 2-3 years since iíve shipped anything over there.

    Normally stuff costs around $15 to ship from the US via USPS 1st Class International. Even if the price has gone up I doubt it was to this level. This was also the shipping cost from Ryan Krusac (who couldn't be bothered to answer an email query about it).

    Anyway, FedEx may actually be cheaper!

    It appears they do ship to NZ, at least it gives me a shipping cost when I put in my address, but there is no way I am paying that much for it.

    When I purchased from them a couple of years ago, the freight to NZ was advertised as reasonable, but after completing the sale they emailed me and said they wouldn't ship it. I suspect the outlandish price is just a way of automating the same outcome.

    I had my pen shipped in the US for $5, and then forwarded for another $15.

    ooh, I got all excited when I saw Ron had posted... surely this must be a lead on a pen! Sadly, not.

    I would be willing to ask around, but while you have stated that you want a good or better condition pen, you have only the vague "fair price". Please give a price range you are willing to pay, pen only, and I'll see if anyone off the grid has a pen matching your desire.

    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."

    Appreciate it, Jon. Not sure if I should put a price on an open forum so have sent a PM.
