I live in the USA and first became aware of LCdC from YouTube fountain pen reviewer SBREBROWN in the Netherlands. When I was interested in purchasing a Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 Platinum fountain pen, I visited La Couronne du Comte's web site and purchased the pen in early December 2019. I immediately received an email from LCdC thanking me for my purchase, but advising the Montblanc 149 Platinum was out of stock and would not be available for 1 to 2 weeks. Two weeks later I received another email from LCdC informing me the pen was back in stock and would be shipped to me immediately. Much to my amazement, the Montblanc 149 arrived at my apartment in New York City the next day, shipped by DHL. The package arrived in perfect condition, and the presentation box was securely packed in the shipping box and neatly wrapped in holiday gift-wrapping. The pen arrived in perfect condition. I was so impressed with both the speed by which the package was shipped by DHL as well as the communication I received from LCdC that I ordered a Pelikan Souveran M1005 Stresemann fountain pen shortly before New Years Day. This pen was in stock and like the Montblanc, I received it the next day in New York after it was shipped from LCdC. Based upon these two purchases, I am exceptionally pleased with La Couronne du Comte's broad product selection, quality customer service, packaging for international delivery and delivery speed via DHL.
