For consideration is this 2021 biro in near mint condition:

Contains some blue ink. Lid extra.

A fellow Lord is interested in trading a iphone xr case for this badboi so you better move fast.

US$7.80 or interesting trades considered

I'm somewhat interested. Could you take and post five hundred pictures of the pen, preferably resting on driftwood and rocks and shit, just like Bazinga?
Unfortunately the pen is with my Cousin so I can not take any more pics. It will be shipped from New Zealand. Do you have any buyer references?

Are you the original owner?
Does it come with box and papers?
Any visible dents, dings, or deep scratches?
What TZ rating woud you say it is?
Has it ever been serviced?
Do you have bill of sale?
Any trades?
Firm on price?
Would you take 10 cents, you cover shipping and you ship first?
Will you come to Austin so I can see it face to face?

Unfortunately it came in a box of 12 so I need the box for my other Biros.

None at all, this thing is FLAWLESS. Only exception is some chew-marks near the base. And some stains where the ink leaked a bit. And the edges of the 'plug' at the base have been picked at. And various typical dents, dings, and deep scratches, commensurate with gentle use. But otherwise mint condition.

I had my watchmaker look it over in May 2021. He didn't know what to do because it's a pen.

Sorry, I need the receipt for my tax.

I would consider trading for a Casio FX-82 scientific calculator, a breeding pair of salamanders, or similar.

Yes. I checked Chrono24 and didn't see any cheaper Biros.

Low-ballers will be politely ignored.

It's unreasonable to expect me to fly from Perth to Austin for a $7.65 sale. I could meet you half way, say, Easter Island?

Interestingly, I just checked with Amazon, and can buy a dozen Biro ink-pens (as we call them here in the US) for $4.95 'Merican. This means that a brand new Biro ink-pen has a street price of 42 cents, in a non-chewed-on condition. And, since I have Amazon Prime (or, more exactly, Mrs. C has Amazon Prime, because I hate fucking Amazon and hope that Jeff Bezos explosively decompresses on his next sub-orbital flight) I wouldn't have to pay for shipping, particularly from Oz.

Therefore, I would offer you 41 cents US, with you paying all fees, shipping, tax duties, etc.

Please respond forthwith, because I don't have all fucking day to make a deal on a fucking goddamned ink-pen over here.

Maybe they are not so easy to lay hands on in the Southern hemisphere. Also, there is a slight chance these are celebrity bite marks, right? So You should not be so cheap, cornshurrer, and jump on this deal forthwith.

You people don't know anything about fine writing instruments. The bite marks are called patinas, maybe you've heard of them? And this Biro isn't from Amazon. Look, I just want to be made hole again so I can afford a new watch I want. I'll hold out for the iphone case. Or salamanders.
