Look at the price these two vintage pieces sold for… what a freaking steal.
Two super rare Pentel Graphs sold for ¥3,620
Welp, Christmas came early for some nicotine-addicted, sleep-deprived Japanese collector under the age of 26
Urks. mercari is just annoying
Golden Micromatic for 266EUR at ebay. I missed the auction, and I am thinking, whether I should be angry or not.
My understanding is those are some of the crappiest hi mecha pencils ever. No manual advance to go with the auto-advance? Hard pass.
yes, no manual advance there. the mechanism is said to be fragile, but i think my micromatics work.
I believe I would have input a sniper bid of 251 or 255 EUR, so I don’t need to be angry.
BTW Now I am gone totally crazy: today I bid and won an auction of 19 (!) pencils in a box. It was cheap, so actually nobody wants those, and I will never be able to resell them.
My Micromatic 777 15 works just fine, but I really don’t like it’s lead cushioning. Super annoying and wish it just didn’t have the feature. Makes is feel really sloppy.
The Pentel Graphs today on YAJ were slightly more expensive than 3620JPY
